HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
Almost everyone has something they'd like to change in their home. It could be a threadbare beige carpet in the bathroom soaking up stray glops of Garnier Fructis. Perhaps it's a Tuscan kitchen that's one breadstick short of announcing, "when you're here, you're family." Luckily, the San Antonio Spring Home & Garden Show will soon be back to provide plenty of inspiration.
The family-friendly exhibition will be returning to the Alamodome February 24-26 with hundreds of experts showcasing up-to-the-minute home products and services. Real estate developer and media personality Ati Williams will headline and maybe spill some behind-the-scenes tea on HGTV's popular DC Flippers.
Other diversions include live painting from aerosol portrait artist ShenShen210, interactive gardening advice from Gardening Volunteers of South Texas, and spring tablescape workshops from Jordylolo Events. The main stage also offers practical guidance on subjects ranging from trending design ideas to solar power.
The event also recognizes that kids can only endure so many discussions of artificial turf before getting fidgety. Under the guidance of pros, the younger set can complete their own DIY project at the Home Depot Children's Workshop. Though the show hasn't announced specifics yet, the final creations are sure to be more impressive than summer camp pinch pots.
And should the shaggiest and scaliest family members feel left out, guests can discover an array of products at PETopia. Fuzzy friends will also be available for adoption throughout the event. And, of course, there will be tasty treats for all at the venue's food court.
Advance adult admission is $9 online through February 23 and $11 once the show starts. Community heroes with valid IDs will be welcome free of charge on special promotional days. Hero day invites active military personnel, veterans, and first responders to experience the event on February 24, and Teacher Day thanks teachers and faculty on February 26.
