PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) -- The 63rd Annual Home Show is back at the Rhode Island Convention Center! The show, running from April 4 to April 7, is open to all ages and is fun for the entire family.
"At the show you can find almost anything you would need for your home," said John Mark Antonio from the Rhode Island Builders Association. "Hundreds and hundreds of exhibits, cooking demonstrations, seminars, we have giveaways for the kids, we have anything you can imagine at the show."
The Home Show will feature a full sized modular home for visitors to walk through. The home is fully equipped with landscaping, furniture, appliances, and lighting. The model home was decorated by Karen Corinha from Corinha Design, landscaped by the Rhode Island Nursery and Landscapers Association, and features an outdoor patio from Arnold Lumber Backyard. Visitors will have plenty of inspiration for their own homes as they walk through the model home and the rest of the Home Show.
