Looking for something to do for Labor Day? The Florida’s Largest Home Show will be open tomorrow from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m at the Tampa Bay Convention Center. Take in some demonstrations, visit the many exhibitors, get ideas for remodeling your home, and have some fun indoors out of the heat.
I attended yesterday with my husband and daughter. The place was packed with people and exhibits. Although there wasn’t much for our daughter to do, many of the exhibitors were kid friendly. They had candy at their tables, allowed children to play games to win prizes, and included children in their conversations. There was a huge slide from Jumpy King that kept my daughter entertained for a while. She even asked to go back a few more times. A clown who made animal balloons walked through the crowd and Sammi was allowed to sit in the boats, feel the water in the spa’s, get free popcorn (a few times), and try out the various products there.
My husband and I had a few specific things in mind that we wanted to look for at the Florida’s Largest Home Show.
- Bathtubs and Shower Remodeling- Our favorite exhibitor was ReBath of Tampa Bay, who took the time to go over some suggestions that we hadn’t even though about.
- Artificial Lawn – We’re sick of seeing our beautiful lawn turn into weeds, paying for water to keep it growing and a lawn service to maintain it. We spoke with Michael Johnson of Sport Court, who designs and Forever Lawns. His company also designs putting greens. We looked at some of his completed work and again got some new ideas for our landscaping.
- Home Furnishings – There were lots of exhibitors who had home furnishings, but our hands down favorite was World of Decor. We just looked though!
We sat in on the second demonstration of the day with Brain Santos, The Wall Wizard, to learn about Faux Finish Tips.
We met up with local non-profits including Habitat For Humanity, Wheels for Success, Treats 4 Troops and Lyrics For Life. There’s something special about meeting the people who put their time and effort into these groups.
