40th annual event returns to Island Grove Regional Park
With tax refunds coming in, now is a great time to start thinking about those home improvements and renovations that have been piling up on your honey-do list.
And there’s no better place to start exploring your home improvement and renovation options than by attending the 40th annual Northern Colorado Home and Garden Show kicking off on Friday at the Island Grove Regional Park and Event Center, 421 N. 15th Ave., Greeley.
Mccreery & Sun of Colorado are providing free grab bags as supplies last to visitors to hold all of the goodies and giveaways they collect at the show. The bags can be reused after the show now that Colorado has implemented the plastic bag ban in retail stores.

Landscaping vendors are returning to the show this year with demonstrations, displays and show specials for gardeners of all skill levels and yard sizes.
Colorado State University Master Gardeners will be on hand giving free, expert advice to guests looking to build, maintain or start landscaping and gardening projects of all shapes and sizes.
Some of the deals and discounts that will be offered to visitors include:

The show isn’t just for adults, either.
ABC Child Development will be in attendance providing craft projects, a coloring contest and a balloon twister for the youngsters.
Southern Twist Foods, The Blue Trolley Bistro, The Human Bean and The Slawpy Barn food trucks and booths will be on site all weekend to keep visitors’ stomachs filled and thirsts quenched during the show.
