OGDEN — Whether you are looking at a landscape project or a new kitchen or want to book travel plans, this year’s Spring Home & Garden Show just might have what you’re looking for.

The semiannual event, sponsored by the Standard-Examiner, will be held March 2-4 at the Golden Spike Events Center.

Close to 200 vendor booths will show off the latest in garden supplies and services, hot tubs, swimming pools, flooring, window coverings, roofing, windows, backyard playground equipment, gardening tips, cleaning products, patio covers and much, much more.

“During the show, hourly seminars and demonstrations will take place,” said Jennifer Thorpe, who works for the Standard-Examiner promotions department. “Starting at 11 a.m. on Friday, seminars covering the latest in gardening and home improvement trends will be presented. These seminars are a great place to get motivated and learn new ideas and skills to help with this year’s home and gardening landscape projects.”

Admission for the event is $3 or two for $5 with a Standard-Examiner coupon, Thorpe said.

The first 200 attendees on Friday and Saturday will be entered in a daily prize drawing for a new Kindle Fire. The drawing will be held at noon both days and you must be present to win.

In addition, master gardeners from University of Utah’s Extension Service will be on hand to give out information and answer questions.

The show is the largest trade show north of Salt Lake City and has been running for more than 30 years.

The Golden Spike Events Center is at 1000 N. 1200 West in Ogden.

Show hours are from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

The first 200 attendees each day will be entered in a daily prize drawing.
