This weekend promises to be a busy one in Cynthiana. The Home and Garden Show is one of the many events that will be drawing guests to the area.

The sixth annual Home and Garden Show will be at a new location this year... The Burley Co-op Marketing Center on U.S. 27 North.

“We’re really excited about the location and the opportunities it provides to our vendors,” said Trish Jenkins, Cynthiana Democrat and Harrison Shopper advertising manager.

The event, which is hosted by The Cynthiana Democrat in cooperation with The Burley Co-op and Harrison County Extension Service, will be held on Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, 1-4 p.m.

Admission is a non-perishable food item or $1. The Harrison County Food Pantry will again be the benefactor of all proceeds from the two-day event.

Sponsors are Blue Grass Energy, VanHook Hardware and Window World Inc.

Jenkins said this year’s event promises to be bigger than previous years with new vendors for water gardens, sun rooms, grandfather clocks, mantel clocks, Doughmaker pans and Amish products.

Other products that will be offered again this year include: blooming plants just in time for the Derby and Mothers Day, barn quilts, handmade wood furniture, lumber, pole barns,  windows, showers, tubs, guttering,  roofing, home decor, spring apparel, Pampered Chef, tree trimming, water purifying system, outdoor wood furnaces, corn pellet fuel furnaces, homemade soaps and lotions, hardwood flooring, cabinets, counter tops, garage doors, vacuums, candles, Tastefully Simple products, fireplaces, wet basement prevention and concrete leveling, mowers, tillers, chain saws, weed eaters, farm equipment, Zoe Success health drink, massagers, heating and air conditioning, satellite TV, Direct TV, storage buildings, dog houses, picnic tables, hardware products, vegetable and flower seeds, trees, shrubs, tomato plants and more.

Many of the vendors will have drawings for prizes, so be sure to check out each booth, Jenkins advised.

She said there truly will be something for everyone, including face painting for children by members of the Harrison County High School girls soccer team.

Donnie North will be back this year to entertain with his chain saw skills. He will be demonstrating wood-carving both days.

You won’t want to miss the great food court, Jenkins said.

Some of the treats to be offered by B&B Catering are brown beans, cornbread, country ham sandwiches and desserts. CJ’s Catering will be selling hamburgers, cheese burgers, ribeye steak sandwiches, hot dogs, chili dogs and chips. The girls soccer team will have a drink booth.
