Those anxiously awaiting the arrival of spring so they can dive into projects around the house will have the chance to come out this weekend to peruse the latest outdoor and home offerings at the annual Home and Outdoor Expo hosted by the Farmington Regional Chamber of Commerce.
The expo is co-sponsored by the Daily Journal and KFMO/B104 Radio. Admission is free.
The event is scheduled to run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Farmington Civic Center located at 2 Black Knight Drive.
Meagan Trask of the chamber said the event will give area residents the chance to see all that is new and trending in the arena of outdoor and home décor.
“Last year was really successful. We had a full house with great vendors,” Trask said. “We’re looking forward to that again this year. It’s a great opportunity for people to get out of the house in the winter and shop for the newest outdoor products and home items.”
Visitors can expect to find vendors showcasing an array of products and services related to everything from home improvement and outdoor recreation to landscaping, lawn care, health and beauty, and travel.
Mary Hostetter and the staff of The Blue Owl Restaurant and Bakery in Kimmswick will offer a selection of desserts, soups and sandwiches for sale again this year and will host cooking demonstrations at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Saturday and at 1 p.m. on Sunday.
