Expo will be big­ger and bet­ter than ever be­fore

Franklin County News - - YOUR PA­PER, YOUR PLACE -

With more than 100 ex­cit­ing ex­hibitors, the Franklin Life­style and Home Expo is set to im­press.

From the lat­est home trends, to ex­clu­sive show deals, or­gan­iser Ayns­ley Gra­ham said it would be the per­fect event for peo­ple to gain in­spi­ra­tion for their homes.

‘‘This year’s expo is go­ing to be big­ger and bet­ter than last year’s with over 20 new com­pa­nies tak­ing part, which has led to in­creas­ing our out­door area.

‘‘It’s a great day out for all the fam­ily with loads of prizes and give­aways to be won,’’ said Gra­ham.

‘‘We have some great food avail­able in Food Truck Al­ley this year and once again you can sit and re­lax whilst lis­ten­ing to some sounds from our lo­cal mu­si­cians.’’

The mu­si­cians con­sist of Claire Ken­dall, Tash, Caitlin Kelly, Blondie & Surfer Boy and 8 Count dancers will put on a show as well.

Gra­ham said if any­one was look­ing to change the look of their home, the expo was the per­fect place to browse for in­spi­ra­tion.

‘‘We have a num­ber of on­trend ex­hibitors at the expo in the floor­ing, cur­tain, paint and wall­pa­per in­dus­tries show­cas­ing the lat­est colour trends and styles.

‘‘De­sign Con­cepts will have the lat­est out­door fur­ni­ture from Ger­many for sale at the expo and there will be chalk paint demon­stra­tions and wood carv­ing demon­stra­tions.’’

With win­ter just around the cor­ner, she said the Naked Flame stall show­cas­ing bio-fuel fire­places would be es­pe­cially in­ter­est­ing.

The fires, which pro­duce no smoke or toxic fumes, are all clean air emis­sions ap­proved.

‘‘There is no doubt that as day­light sav­ings kicks in, and the months start to get colder, that home heat­ing is al­ways a hot topic.

Imag­ine a fire that re­quired no flue or chim­ney, and of­ten no con­sents, no chop­ping fire­wood or no toxic gas fumes.’’

Ex­clu­sive show deals will in­clude a home the­atre sys­tem from Gary Pye 100% at Waiuku and Pana­sonic and West­pac will be giv­ing away an iPad and iWatch over the course of the week­end as well.

The event will be held on April 8-9 at the PIA Event Cen­tre.

Tick­ets are $8 for adults, and un­der 16s are free if ac­com­pa­nied by an adult.
