This weekend’s HBA Home Show in Jefferson City features more than 120 vendors with expertise covering the gamut in building and remodeling.

“What intrigues me the most about the show is that we have the local professionals in the building/remodeling trades and anything that is associated with building and remodeling projects under one roof at your fingertips,” event chairwoman Lisa Luebbering said.

Attendees will find booths on flooring, new building materials, environmentally friendly products, heating and cooling systems, and waterproofing to name a few.

The show runs from 3-8 p.m. today; 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday; and from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday at the Firley YMCA. Admission is $2.50, with children under 18 admitted free. Multi-day discount passes are being sold at Mid-City Lumber, 525 Ellis Blvd.

Free shuttle rides are available from Midland Oil or Knights of Columbus.

Even the kids will have something to do at the home show, Luebbering said. Lowe’s will sponsor a kids zone that will teach kids to build bird houses. It will be held from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday and from 12-2 p.m. Sunday.

Raffle prizes will be given away throughout the weekend, including a grand prize of a custom glass shower enclosure. Each attendee gets a tote bag when entering.

Also, daily seminars will be held by Steve Shorthouse, a national color and design consultant being sponsored by Brady’s Paint and Glass. He will give daily seminars on color coordination, and attendees are encouraged to bring samples (such as photos, pillows or swatches of draperies) for advice on custom color coordination. Those free seminars will be held at 6 p.m. today, 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday and 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Sunday.
