The 2nd Annual Northwest Iowa Home Show returns to Clay County Regional Events Center January 14 through January 16. Admission is free and exhibits will showcase the latest home landscaping, building and remodeling products and services.
"Last year was our inaugural show and the people of northwest Iowa and southern Minnesota made it a huge success," stated Bill Jackson, president of Spirit Lake-headquartered Jackson Expo Group, producer of the show. "This year's show will again feature hundreds of great ideas to help homeowners make their house a home."
Exhibitor displays will include such diverse products as remodeling materials; interior decoration, kitchens, appliances, carpet, garage doors, siding, landscaping ideas, hot tubs, telecommunications equipment, windows, heating and air conditioning, water conditioning systems, home theaters, and more.
In addition to the exhibits, the show will present an array of "How To" seminars for do-it-yourselfers featuring a variety of expert presenters speaking on topics of interest to homeowners. Each seminar will be repeated several times during the three-day event.
