Posted in Home & Garden

Early response to the annual Decorah Home, Sport and Garden Show has been strong, with a combination of past exhibitors and first-timers set to show their products and services.

The 28th Annual Show is scheduled for Sunday, March 6th, at Decorah Senior High School, 100 Claiborne Drive.

Up to 80 exhibitors appear at the show each year with items and services ranging from home improvement to leisure time pursuits to landscaping. Last year's show offered displays such as kitchen and bath renovation, home design, concrete overlays, furniture, lawn & garden tractors, bicycles, watercraft, vehicles, and even food sampling.

The show will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., filling two large gyms plus outdoor displays at Thomas Roberts Senior High School in Decorah.

Sunflower Childcare is expected to present its pancake brunch Sunday morning, and kids games and exhibitor seminars are planned once again.

Exhibitor spaces are still available to exhibitors.

The event is produced and sponsored by KDEC AM1240 and FM100.5 Radio, Decorah.

Admission to the show is free.
