It’s time once again for the annual Greater Limestone County Chamber of Commerce Home and Garden Show. This expo has grown every year, draws attendees from all over the Tennessee Valley, and is the perfect way to prepare for spring. The event is also going a bit earlier this year, so you need to mark your calendars so you don’t miss it!

More than 50 exhibitors come together to make the event happen, and the price for admission is $2 for the whole weekend. Some of the 2018 sponsors include: Redstone Federal Credit Union, Limestone County Sheriff’s Office, Persell Lumber & Mill Shop, Inline Electric Supply Company, AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists, Lowe’s, Distinctive Landscaping, Inc., Valley Mowing Company and Hamlin Homes.

Attending the show is a way to learn how to turn all of your home and garden dreams into a reality! If you’re looking for inspiration, new ideas, or a little encouragement for your upcoming spring projects, you need look no further than the 2018 Limestone County Home and Garden Show! Join more than 2,000 of your fellow do-it-yourselfers on February 16 and February 17 at the Limestone County Event Center, located on Pryor Street in Athens. Event hours are from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. on Friday, February 16 and 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 17.

This is your opportunity to explore the latest trends in a variety of home-related exhibitors including custom home building and remodeling, home decorating, bathroom and kitchen ideas, home repairs and amenities, outdoor living and landscaping, flooring, windows and doors, and so much more. You are guaranteed to find the products and services you are looking for, and will have the chance to speak to the area’s finest professional service providers who will help you with all your home and garden projects. Don’t forget there are prizes, hourly giveaways, and the kids’ activities for your little ones!

Keep Athens Limestone Beautiful’s trusty mascot, Sparky, will be providing photo ops with the kids, and KALB’s Director, Lynne Hart, mentioned that “Sparky will have goodies to give to the children.”

“We always have such a great representation of exhibitors showcasing a variety of home and garden related product and services.  It’s really a great weekend to get out and get your ideas and inspiration ready for spring,” said Jennifer Williamson, who heads up the Greater Limestone County Chamber of Commerce.

Representatives from every aspect of home improvement will be present, from HVAC to roofs to windows to siding to plumbing to financing to more. For your garden, there will be people from a big-box store as well as a large local nursery. For your home’s interior, you can find help with custom picture framing, lighting, furniture selection, remodeling, and radon detection.

All in all, there is something for everyone at a price that can’t be beat, and the annual Limestone County Chamber of Commerce Home and Garden Show is one of my favorite ways to wait for spring to finally spring.
