14th Annual North Metro Home & Garden Show scheduled Feb. 25
The cities of Mounds View, Blaine, and Fridley, Minnesota, are co-sponsors of the 14th Annual North Metro Home & Garden Show.
This community event will be held Saturday, Feb. 25, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m, at the Schwan Center, 1750 – 105th Avenue Northeast, Blaine. There is no admission, which showcases local specialists providing everything you need—including inspiration and financing—for remodeling or improving your home and yard.

Features of the North Metro Home & Garden Show include informative seminars, door prize drawings that take place periodically during the show, and a Sponsors Treasure Hunt with a chance to win a $50 VISA gift card. We’re also offering a Kids Activity Center with fun crafts, and a face painter from 9:30 – 1:30.
“We are excited about the seminars we are offering this year,” said event coordinator Marsha Wagner. “Becky and Jeff Chudek of Inspired Design Landscapes are presenting two: ‘Create Your Own Pond on Your Patio or Beyond’ and ‘Top Ten Tips to Keep Your Garden Looking Tip Top,’ where you can bring in your gardening challenges and receive free expert advice. Master Gardener Kim Sullivan will help you ‘Build-Your-Own Lazy Lawn Care Guide’ and Tony Enger, Harrison Electric, will help you decide if it’s time to replace that old appliance in his seminar, ‘What Can You Learn From Your Electric Bill?’ Greg Bergeron, Coon Rapids Home Depot, will help you with your ‘Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeling Projects,’ and Amber Schafer, Sherwin Williams, will show you the latest color and design trends in ‘Decorative Painting Techniques.’ All seminars last about an hour, and will include time for Q&A.” For the full seminar schedule with times and descriptions, please see the show’s website: www.northmetrohomeandgarden.com.
