Event returns with the spring

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

SIKESTON -- This weekend, an event that has been absent from the Sikeston scene for almost two decades will return -- and organizers couldn't be more excited.

The Sikeston Board of Realtors Home and Garden Show will be from 1 to 9 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday at the Miner Convention Center. It will feature about 40 booths with a wide variety of products.

"If you are involved in new construction, own a home and are remodeling or just want to snack on some good food, this show is for you," said Sharon Medlin, president of the Sikeston Board of Realtors. "We've got a real wide variety of vendors, and there is something for everyone."

A majority of the businesses are from Sikeston-Miner, with several other from Southeast Missouri communities.

Cookware demonstrations, plants, home scents and more will also be on display. "It's not just about building or remodeling a home," said Medlin.

Samantha Jarrett of First Midwest Bank in Sikeston, an affiliate member of the Board of Realtors, agreed. She encourages anyone considering purchasing a home to come out -- not only to get ideas, but to get an idea of the resources available to them on their house hunt.
