Those looking to remodel, add new landscaping or spruce up their home should put the Burnsville Community Home Show on their to-do list.
The expo that will feature dozens of home-related businesses will be held 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16, at Mary, Mother of the Church, 3333 Cliff Rd E.
While the event’s centerpiece will be the booths staffed by experts in various businesses, the Burnsville Chamber of Commerce event also serves as a great time to connect and learn more about other offerings in the community.
It’s free to attend and there’s ample parking in the longtime local church’s parking lot.
The Burnsville Lions Club will be preparing food, with all proceeds going to benefit Lions activities in the community. On the menu are cinnamon rolls and coffee for breakfast, along with hot dogs, sloppy joes and chips for lunch.
The Title Sponsor of the event is New Spaces, which will be among those offering seminars during the day.
