Actress Elizabeth Banks did something Thursday few can lay a claim to: She lit the world’s largest Lego Christmas tree.
Held at Legoland California Resort in Carlsbad, Calif., the 11th annual tree lighting ceremony featured a 30-foot-tall Lego Christmas tree with more than 11,000 lights, CBS News reported

The program, held in the park’s Fun Town area, was also an occasion for Banks, a mother of two, to make a presentation to a program serving children and to promote an upcoming film.
Banks currently stars as Effie Trinket in one of the highest-grossing films this year, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire." She presented a $10,000 check from Legoland to the City of Los Angeles' Better Educated Students for Tomorrow (BEST) program, an after-school initiative that provides safe and monitored enrichment, education, and recreation opportunities for elementary school children ages 5 to 12.
Banks voices "Wyldstyle" in "The Lego Movie," a 3D animated film that is scheduled for release on Feb. 7, 2014.
