GRIPBlock builds a LEGO city for Stouffville Holiday Market

With a one-of-a-kind Christmas tree and booths designed to keep vendors and attendees warm, the first-ever Stouffville Holiday Market was an in instant success, thanks to support from GRIPBlock.

“Mayor Lovatt and his team gave us a unique challenge to put this winter market together,” said GRIPBlock CEO Montu Khokhar, who recently moved to Stouffville. “We were able to accomplish this with eight people, two trucks, 6,000 blocks and we created a mini-LEGO city in just 48 hours. We were very proud to do it for Stouffville, and the community came out and loved it.”

The Stouffville winter market featured over forty GRIPBlock structures including 25 vendor booths, a performance stage, a wall behind Santa and a giant wood Christmas tree, which was easily the star attraction of the show

Mayor Iain Lovatt hosted a countdown to the lighting of the Christmas tree and thanked GRIPBlock for their support.

The Holiday Market was the perfect setting for GRIPBlock to demonstrate how it’s unique reusable block is ideally suited for outdoor structures that need to withstand the elements. GRIPBlocks can be stacked like Lego bricks to create strong and sustainable structures, with zero foundation. Made of renewable materials, GRIPBlocks can be reused and recycled making them one of the most eco-friendly building materials available.
