Put Home Expressions show on your schedule

  • Print

Now that the Parade of Homes is over, you're probably wondering what to do about your home.

You visited many beautiful new homes during the Parade and are torn between fixing up your current home and trading it in for a newer model. Now is the best time ever to consider both options.

Most of the show homes are still open for your viewing. If you've misplaced your Parade magazine, it's still on the Manitoba Home Builders Association website (www.homebuilders.mb.ca). Take some time to visit one that caught your fancy during Parade, or look at some completely new ones.

If you're considering what to do with your existing home, the Home Expressions Home and Garden Show is April 4, 5 and 6 at the RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg. Home Expressions is taking place on the second and third floors and is packed with great ideas for your home.

The show is features more than 200 exhibitors, the largest and most comprehensive such event in the province. The list is too long for this column, but let's just say that anything you need for your home's interior, your yard, garden or cottage will be on display at Home Expressions. (www.homeexpressions.ca) There are prizes, raffles and plenty of chances to win big at this years' 40th anniversary show. The Canadian Decorators' Association will be there, providing free advice for upgrading your home. There are two stages with fascinating and informative presentations throughout the show.

A special attraction for this year's event is the MTS Salute to Hockey, featuring the Hockey Fan Cave by Jackie Morra Interiors on the second floor. This was a popular part of last year's Toronto home show, and Home Expressions is the first time that the Fan Cave has gone on the road.

All hockey fans will be delighted to see memorabilia, luxuries and the essentials of the perfect setting to watch hockey. There will even be an artificial-surface skating rink attached to the Fan Cave.

Tickets are available through TicketMaster at the door on the day of the shows for $13.50, which includes agency fees and GST. All of the home and garden products and services that you will need are on display at the Home Expressions Home and Garden Show April 4 (noon - 9 p.m.), April 5 (10 a.m. - 8 p.m.) and April 6 (noon - 5 p.m.) at the RBC Convention Centre. Why drive all over town when everything you need is under one roof?

Mike Moore is the president of the Manitoba Home Builders' Association.
