LouisvilleDispatch_HomeShow17_0872The Home, Garden & Remodeling Show opened this morning at the Kentucky Exposition Center.  The show features home improvement and landscaping exhibitors from all over the nation, but the majority are from right here in Kentucky.  The more than 300 exhibitors will showcase their products and services, which include everything from hot tubs and roofing materials to fire places, landscaping and deck furniture.

The show also features many information sessions that will cover gardening and landscaping tips, insect control (as well as what not to control), and cooking classes.  L&N Federal Credit Union will be sponsoring a tree giveaway: 4,000 saplings of several varieties will be given to show guests who stop by their booth.

The Kids Craft Area for children up to 10 years of age provides the opportunity to take home a flower that they planted themselves, and a bug house that will feature tropical insects.  If you need a break from all of the information, there will also be multiple performances each day that will feature performing Frisbee dogs.

The show exhibits occupy the Kentucky Exposition Centers’s south wing halls B & C all weekend.  Show hours today and Saturday are from 10 AM to 9 PM and Sunday from 10 AM until 5 PM.

Pets, excluding service animals, will not be allowed into the show area. Admission is $10 per person (16 and older) with free admission for children accompanied by an adult.  Those with a military ID will be admitted free and seniors will receive a discount.   Credit cards will not be accepted at the Ticket Gate.  Advanced tickets are available online through Facebook with a Buy 1, Get 1 Offer or through the show page with a $2 discount along with a one year subscription to one of four magazines.  Kentucky Exposition Center parking is $8 per car.
