The Daytona Beach News-Journal’s annual Fall Home Show isn’t just a showcase for products and services, organizers say, it’s a community happening and tradition.
“We are looking forward to a dynamic Home Show, with the latest home trends, and opportunities for the community to come out and check out everything, from buying new to remodeling,” News-Journal Marketing Director Jamie Brown said of the 56th annual event, to take place Friday through Sunday at Ocean Center in Daytona Beach. There is a little something for everyone, she said, and a family-friendly environment.
The area’s largest and longest-running home and garden exposition, The News-Journal’s show highlights home improvement and maintenance, lawn and garden care, cooking, lifestyle and leisure activities, health and fitness.
Celebrity guests this year are Ben and Erin Napier from HGTV’s “Home Town” show, who will share their tips at 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday about remodeling, decorating and finding the best ways to make your home comfortable and beautiful without breaking the bank.
New cars will be on display from several dealerships, including all of those that call the Daytona International Auto Mall home.
On stage, host Brenda O’Donnell will keep things lively and moving all weekend, with a lineup of seminars and speakers. Activities for children will include a bounce house and birdhouse-building workshops 11 a.m. to noon Saturday and 2 to 3 p.m. Sunday.
In addition to the Ocean Center’s usual concession fare, specialties chosen for the show will be served at the Chef’s Table, hosted by the convention center’s event caterers, Spectra Food Services & Hospitality. Sweet and Spicy Shrimp Tacos with a sweet jicama slaw or Pork Carnitas Tacos, with onions, cilantro and lime juice will be available for $8 per three-piece serving said Dallas Elwell, catering sales manager.
