As the much anticipated spring approaches, the cities of Andover, Anoka and Coon Rapids want homeowners to be prepared for any improvement projects they have in mind.
The 16th annual North Suburban Home Improvement Show is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 22 at the Andover YMCA/Community Center, 15200 Hanson Blvd. NW.
With approximately 100 vendors on-hand for this free show, visitors will get diverse examples of ways they can approve their home’s curb appeal and interior appearance.
A full list of vendors can be found at www.northsuburbanhomeshow.org.
Visitors will be able to find more information on flooring, siding, windows, air conditioning, water softeners, garage doors, gutters, landscaping, kitchen and bathroom remodeling, outdoor patios and much more. Financial institutions will also be available to answer questions.
Show organizer Cindy Ramseier noted that one new vendor this year is a Spring Lake Park company called Accessible Construction and Products (formerly Dave Regal Construction) that can help make a home handicapped accessible.
Parents are welcome to bring their children to the show. The first 300 kids will receive a project kit from Lowe’s of Coon Rapids.
This kids’ workshop and a battery power tool demonstration organized by Home Depot of Coon Rapids will be set up in the YMCA’s meeting rooms rather than the outdoor tent that these activities were in last year, according to Ramseier.
Cub Scout Pack 609 will once again be assisting at the show.
Although there is no admission charge, Ramseier is encouraging people to donate a non-perishable food item or money to the Anoka County Brotherhood Council Food Shelf of Anoka.
