DERBY â Thereâs no place like the Home, Garden and Recreation Show.
The show takes place Friday, 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
There will be entertainment, exhibits, seminars and about 50 vendors, some of which will come from outside Orleans County.
âI think they see there is business here; theyâre going to try to get some of it,â said show organizer Chris Johansen.
One of the highlights of the show is a chance to win a new 2012 Chrysler 200 Limited from Northpoint Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. Other local dealers will also have displays.
âIt should be our biggest so far for little old Newport,â Johansen said of the show. âWe have everything from plumbing and heating to automotive to health and recreation. You name it, itâs sort of there.â
The show is now at capacity. âIf itâs going to grow, we either need to add on to IROC or decide whether to rent tents and so on,â said Johansen. âWe pretty much filled the space.â
Thereâs been a home show in the Newport area off and on for at least 20 years.
