DERBY â€“ Thereâ€™s 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.
â€śI think they see there is business here; theyâ€™re going to try to get some of it,â€ť 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.
â€śIt should be our biggest so far for little old Newport,â€ť Johansen said of the show. â€śWe have everything from plumbing and heating to automotive to health and recreation. You name it, itâ€™s sort of there.â€ť
The show is now at capacity. â€śIf itâ€™s going to grow, we either need to add on to IROC or decide whether to rent tents and so on,â€ť said Johansen. â€śWe pretty much filled the space.â€ť
Thereâ€™s been a home show in the Newport area off and on for at least 20 years.
