This weekend is the 39th annual Minot Association of Builders Home and Garden Show.
This year at the fair grounds-- you can find everything you need for the Spring season as this is the largest in Minot Home show history.
Bonnie Campo takes us there.
You don't have to strain to hear the echoes of a drill or ringing of a skill-saw if you're one of the many preparing for tomorrow's home show. Displays and set up's have become more elaborate than ever.
(Paul Zakopyko, Crane Johnson Lumber) "We wanted to show that we are not afraid of any project of any size. We want to get our name out there, and of course develop leads, and meet the people that are in the market, and provide ideas for the home builders, and home owners in the area."
To help vendors look their best for opening day a volunteer group of future carpenters have come to lend a hand in hopes that they too may someday make it to the show.
(Kayliena Budeau, Future Carpenter) "I am a carpentry student with the Burdick Job Corps. Center. We were offered to come down here today to set-up for the Home and Garden Show. I've been going around, just walking around just asking if they need any help, and I kind of put myself out there for prospects of jobs and everything."
They might have some heavy lifting ahead of them-- as this year boasts 130 exhibits and that number keeps climbing.
(Vicki Flagstad, Minot Home and Garden Show) "This is the most number of exhibitors we've had I believe in the history of the show. We're not lacking for things to see and people to talk to. We're all sick and tired of the weather. We can't let it keep us in the house all weekend."
This show already has everything from delicious home goods to home repair and renovation-- and they're all in one place this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. In Minot-- Bonnie Campo KX News.
If you decide to visit the fair grounds this weekend-- admission to the show is four dollars for adults and children get in free.
