Juneau's 35th annual home show opens this weekend in Centennial Hall with a twist - it's including elements promoting the great outdoors as well as the indoors.
Rich Harris, president of the Southeast Alaska Building Industry Association - the show's sponsor - said in a letter that the new feature follows the Southeast Alaska living style. "If we're not indoors, then we're outdoors," he says in the home show pamphlet.
More than 60 vendors will be on hand when the show opens at 10 a.m. Saturday morning. Early birds can have fun with a Friday night wine tasting that takes place at 5 p.m.
Tickets for the show are $6 at the door, or $5 for seniors. Children under 12 are admitted free. Tickets for the wine tasting are $20 in advance by calling 463-5774 or $25 at the door.
