The Fall Home Show at the I-X Center

When: Fri., Oct. 29 2010

For most of us, the annual home & garden show fix comes right about when the tundra thaws, when we're toting those Christmas wreaths back down to the basement. This year the I-X Center is jump-starting our inspiration early with the ACS Fall Home Show. The focus: home and landscape improvement — all those projects that are way easier to handle in the days before the first snow hits. This show doesn't parade glitzy as-seen-on-TV celebrity speakers or fancy designer gardens; it's just a lot of exhibitors with products and advice for those in the mood to make a change for the better. And what happens when Bob Vila isn't owed an "appearance fee"? Your admission is free of charge, just as the do-it-yourself gods intended. The Fall Home Show runs today from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Go to for more information. Thinking of making a day of it? The I-X Center is also hosting Trick or Treat Street, a Halloween wonderland of rides, kids' shows, and more. Cost is $12 per person; go to for information on that. It all happens at the I-X Center, 6200 Riverside Dr. near the airport. — Pantsios
