Planning under way for Tri-State Home and Garden Show

WINTERSVILLE — The Tri-State Home and Garden Show will be making its return, Friday, Saturday and March 3 to the St. Florian Hall, with a variety of vendors to help area residents with the home improvement and gardening plans.

The show, sponsored by DeNoon Lumber, the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce and Weirton Area Chamber of Commerce, has become a yearly tradition in the Ohio Valley.

Rob Vandine, of event organizer Wheelhouse Creative, said this year’s show will feature more than 80 vendors covering everything from landscaping to satellite television companies.

“There is a little bit of everything for everybody,” he said.

Vandine said the show is a great resource for those looking to make home repairs in the coming year. He said there will be vendors who can both be hired to complete the job themselves or can assist homeowners on a DIY project.

Brenda Mull, president of the Weirton Area Chamber of Commerce, said the show will feature businesses from all over the valley.

“We have businesses small and large,” she said. ” Everything from landscapers to paving and plumbing.”

Tricia Maple Damewood, the president of the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce, agreed.

“There is a great variety whether you are looking to take care of inside or outside your home,” she said.

Maple Damewood said a popular attraction is the “showroom” provided by DeNoon Lumber.

According to Maple Damewood, the lumber company creates a display featuring custom outdoor furniture and landscaping ideas for consumers.

“They build a room to show off all their furniture,” she said.

Officials said the show is not just for those with a project already in mind.

“(The show) is a great showcase of local businesses and a great way to find inspiration,” Maple Damewood said. “It’s a fun way to say goodbye to winter and start thinking about getting outside.”

Officials also said it’s a great way to stock up on snack goods. The Girl Scouts will be on site selling cookies and the Boy Scouts will be offering popcorn.

Vandine said the event is free to the public and Undo’s will be selling food during the event.
