Fourth Annual Fulton Area Home Show Set For Saturday, March, 20, 2010 At Fulton War Memorial

Booths and exhibits from building suppliers, home repair specialists, and financial institutions will fill the Fulton War Memorial for the fourth consecutive year when the Fulton Area Home Show returns on Saturday, March, 20, 2010. A true sign of spring, the free home show is an opportunity for local homeowners and potential homebuyers to get a glimpse of the many services available for buying, selling, renovating, and sprucing up a home.

The show runs from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. and is sponsored by Burkes Home Center, and presented by the City of Fulton and the Fulton Community Development Agency. In addition to the more than 40 exhibits, the home show will feature the Neighborhood Beautification Awards, sponsored by Fulton Savings Bank. “We had great feedback from last year’s event,” Joe Fiumara, Executive Director of The Fulton Community Development Agency, said. “People were so impressed with the number and variety of services available in this area. We had a strong showing from the public last year, and we hope for an even bigger showing this year.”

Fiumara explained that the idea of the home show was in response to many comments from the community that homeowners didn’t know where to go for certain information, were not aware of certain services in the community, or were looking for a place where they could ask questions without being under any obligation to buy something or sign up for something. “Regardless of income, people are looking for certain things and were not sure where to get them,” he said. “The Home Show will be an ideal place for people looking to buy a home, as well as people who own a home and are looking to make some improvements.”

The show will feature more than 40 local exhibitors, as well as on-going demonstrations by local contractors, building supply companies, and landscapers. Exhibitor spaces for the home show are still available, but are booking quickly, Fiumara noted. “We have been pleased with the response by the business community so far,” he said, “and we expect that the remaining spaces will be filled in the next few weeks. This is such a good opportunity for our community to see what’s available to them and to look forward to the spring and summer home improvement and landscaping months.”
