POLK COUNTY - Need a little motivation to help kick-start those home remodeling plans you have? Or what about those yard and garden projects that have piled up after a long winter's nap?
The Polk Home and Garden Show may be just the place to find those ideas you are looking for.
The Polk County Fairgrounds in Rickreall is the site for this year's Polk Home and Garden show, which opens Friday and runs through Sunday.
Show hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
The show is designed to help inspire attendees with everything from home decorating and remodeling ideas to addressing that special project waiting in the yard or garden. Plants and flowers, the latest in home furnishings and appliances, home mortgage information and more will be available.
Nearly 40 vendors, many of them Polk County-based businesses, are scheduled to participate in the three-day event.
Among the highlights of the show are daily seminars from a variety of home and garden experts.
Admission to the show is $3, with children 16 and under admitted free. The fairgrounds is located at 520 S. Pacific Highway (99W) in Rickreall.
