Times-Herald (Vallejo) - - LOCAL NEWS - By Nick Ses­tanovich ns­es­[email protected]­

Once again, Solano County res­i­dents will be able to meet ex­perts in fields rang­ing from roof re­pair to paint­ing to so­lar in­stal­la­tions while also en­joy­ing food, ar­ti­san crafts, kids’ ac­tiv­i­ties and more.

The Solano County Home & Gar­den Show is back, this time in a new lo­ca­tion. Af­ter hav­ing pre­vi­ously been held at the Dixon Fair­grounds and Nut Tree Plaza, this year the fes­tiv­i­ties will take place at the for­mer For­ever 21 space at the Solano Town Cen­ter.

Show pro­moter Shawna Arzadon said she was walk­ing through the mall as For­ever 21 was hold­ing its go­ing out of busi­ness sale and thought it would be the per­fect venue for the event.

“I ap­proached the mall with it, and they were more than happy to ac­com­mo­date,” she said. “I thought it would be a great area, it would be a beau­ti­ful plat­form for ev­ery­body else to at­tend, even if they’ve never been to a Home & Gar­den Show.”

Hun­dreds of ven­dors will be on site, al­low­ing home­own­ers to ask ques­tions, re­ceive es­ti­mates and learn more about top­ics like green en­ergy.

There will also be a Kids’ Zone with crafts, face paint­ing and more. Slime World will be pro­vid­ing slime for kids to play with, My Once Upon a Time will fea­ture fa­mous char­ac­ters to in­ter­act with the kid­dies and North Bay Gym­nas­tics will be do­ing a demon­stra­tion. Lo­cal crafters and painters will also be on hand to pro­vide po­ten­tial Valen­tine’s Day gifts.

Other ven­dors in­clude Mem­ph­, which will be pro­vid­ing a digital pho­to­booth; Hel­ton’s Truffles ‘N’ Treats, which will be pro­vid­ing sweet con­fec­tionar­ies; and KUIC, which will kick off the event from noon to 2 p.m. Feb. 8 with mu­sic, games and prizes.

Arzadon said the event will al­low fam­i­lies to have fun and con­nect at­ten­dees with people to po­ten­tially work on their homes.

“It’s good that the com­mu­nity is able to do some­thing that’s fam­ily-friendly and fun and that people can get ex­pert ad­vice from people that they can see in per­son,” she said. “This gives people an op­por­tu­nity to meet their ven­dors, the people that are gonna be work­ing in their house when they choose to do their projects.”

The Solano County Home & Gar­den Show will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Feb. 8 and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 9 on the up­per level of the Solano Town Cen­ter above Dick’s Sport­ing Goods, 1451 Gate­way Blvd., Fair­field.
