Everything for your home this weekend
THE RBC Convention Centre is going to be the main attraction in the city this weekend after the Home Expressions Home and Garden Show opened Friday. Manitoba’s premier home show runs today from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. The Home Expressions show features more than 200 exhibitors filling both the second and third floors of the facility. These experts are on hand to show you the latest trends for improving your home. The exhibitors at the show are offering everything from fencing to flooring, from appliances to alarm systems, from baths to beds, from windows to walkways, from closets to cabinets, tools, pools and gardens galore. At no other time and no other place can you do this much comparison shopping. The best suppliers and manufacturers in Manitoba are all under one roof, presenting a variety of options for your home needs. There is only one true place where the real show specials exist — the convention centre this weekend. In addition, there are some fabulous draws for prizes throughout the show floor. Scott McGillivray, host of HGTV series Income Property, will be presenting in the Convention Centre Theatre at 1 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $20 plus agency fee and include admission to the Home Expressions show. General admission to Home Expressions is $12 plus Ticketmaster agency fee. Other show features include a draw for a grand prize valued at almost $12,000, donated by LCL Spas, Barkman and St. Mary’s Nursery. All ticket proceeds go to Special Olympics Manitoba. Be sure to visit the booth of the Winnipeg Realtors and Manitoba Real Estate Association, our presenting sponsors. The Buy Manitoba Market is another new feature this year. This is the perfect weekend for home planning. It’s the last weekend of the always popular Spring Parade of Homes and the Home Expressions Home and Garden Show. If you’re looking for a new home and need to complement it with indoor and outdoor features or upgrading your current home, this weekend will have all the answers to your questions.
