Here we are at the end of March and there is a winter storm warning posted for this weekend. Ugh, again?! If you are tired of cold, snowy weather and need some color in your life–check out the Greater Kansas City Home Show/Flower, Lawn and Garden Show this weekend at Bartle Hall.
I enjoy this event as there is so much to see and learn about your home. If you are thinking of some home improvement projects, there are a lot of ideas here–especially regarding outdoor spaces and gardens. The speakers are always interesting, and there’s a Kids Korner if you are bringing the young ones. Plus, you will find interesting home decor for sale–things you won’t find anywhere else.
Some of the highlights of this year’s show include:
*Information on ‘aging in place’ regarding mobility and accessibility for seniors.
*Sarah Susanka, author of “The Not So Big House” will speak Saturday morning.
*The “Wall Wizard” will teach you painting, wallpaper, and wall repair tips.
*Useful info from the Kansas City Parks and Recreation Department.
Exhibit booths include everything from patios, plumbing, pest control, waterproofing your home; renewable energy sources and gardening seminars.
You can get tickets on line or at the door. On Sunday you can buy 2 for 1 tickets with a donation to Harvesters. Read details here. The show is open tonight until 8pm, Saturday 10am-8pm and Sunday 10am-6pm. This is the 65th Annual Home Show–I wonder if they will have any photos from years past? Now that would be an interesting exhibit to see!
