Tuesday, January 8, 2008

The fifth annual Northwest Iowa Home Show returns to the Clay County Regional Events Center Jan. 11-13. Admission is free and exhibits will showcase the latest home ideas, products and services.

"Winter is a great time for people in northwest Iowa and southern Minnesota to explore new projects and plan ahead for spring," says Bill Jackson, president of Spirit Lake headquartered Jackson Expo Group, producer of the show. "People come to this show to find the newest products and services to put their spring home improvement projects into motion. The show's exhibits are also great idea starters for those unsure about what to do and how to do it around the home."

Exhibitor displays will include such diverse products as remodelling materials, interior decoration, kitchens, appliances, flooring, garage doors, siding, landscaping ideas, hot tubs, telecommunications equipment, windows, heating and air conditioning, water conditioning systems, home theatres and more.

In addition to the exhibits, the show will present an array of "How to" seminars with exoperts in their fields - everything from cutting costs on mortgages to master gardening to the impact of all-digital TV.

"Area homeowners are finding the answers to a variety of questions and getting a first look at the latest innovations in home improvement technology," Jackson said.

Hours are Friday, Jan. 11 from 5-9 p.m.; Saturday, Jan. 12 from 10 a.m.- 6 p.m, January 13 from noon- 5 p.m.
