42nd Annual Home & Garden Expo plans to blossom at Expo Center
BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - As the Brazos Valley transitions into summer you can gain knowledge in home, garden products and local services at the 42nd Home & Garden Expo Saturday and Sunday at the Brazos County Expo.
The theme for this year’s event is remodeling.
”This has been our busiest spring. Of course every spring for us is busy. You know tail end of COVID contributed to it and also the snow storm,” said Kevin Hester of Kevin’s Landscapes.
Hester said you can expect your home improvement project to take time.
”If you come to us you’re going to have to wait a little bit. We get to everybody as fast as we can but there’s a reason for that and that’s because we do good quality work,” he said.
Larry Muehlstein of Robertson County came by a day early to get more information about the event. He like many others lost some landscaping during the winter snow storms.
Organizers say indoor home improvements also are in demand.
”Room expansion and room renovation, brighter colors, whether it be flooring or wall paint or tiles or fixtures. Lighting, outdoor porch enclosures. That kind of thing. We’re just really seeing people expand their environment,” said Rose Selman, Greater Brazos Valley Builders Association Executive Officer.
”We’re expecting a high turnout. We’re expecting to be very busy and for our staff to be exhausted by the end of the day tomorrow and so that’s a successful day for us when we’re exhausted,” said Hester.
“We are really concentrating on remodeling and renovation. People having to spend so much time in their homes this past year, they’re really looking at ways that they can improve their environment,” said Selman.
The expo gives residents the opportunity to speak with experts, 44 to be exact, from a wide range of fields
“Everything from the ground up,” said Selman. “Your interior comfort, HVAC, your exterior with swimming pools, yards, things for your pets, exterior rooms, interior painting, a lot of flooring options, countertops, different services, but local vendors.”
Additionally, there is the opportunity to bid on both a deer blind and deer feeder built by Rudder High School Welding.
The expo will be taking place Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
