Attention DC and Maryland! The fall Home and Garden show is taking place this weekend at the Timonium Fairgrounds, and it’s going to be the place to be! This show is going to be 150,000 square feet of space jam-packed with home design experts, landscaping companies, and local crafters, selling everything you could need to update your home from the outside in. There’s even a family friendly balloon garden, where everything from the flowers, shrubs, and plants, to the brightly colored aerial displays are designed entirely from balloons!
This year’s Home and Garden Show will feature TV personality and author Steve Katkowsky, to lead seminars on how to make the most of small indoor spaces, and the “Green Building Institute” will be on hand to answer questions on how to make your home more “green.” More than 400 exhibitors in the home and garden field will be displaying their products, and offering their services, and over 100 crafters will be selling everything from pottery, to jewelry, to photographs, and designer homemade candles.
Activities for Adults and Kids:
Habitat for Humanity will be raffling off a playhouse to raise money, and providing a place to paint and build your own birdhouse (kits will also be available for purchase – great for the kids!).
