It’s one thing to live in the community, and quite another to be fully aware of what all that community has to offer.
The Lake County Expo, a longstanding event hosted by the Lake County Examiner each February, provides ample opportunity to learn about and meet face to face the business owners who offer a variety of valuable goods and services.
Perhaps one is considering a major upgrade to their home, and is interested in consulting with a local contractor. It could be that a need exists for media consulting services for the sake of advertising and community service news coverage, or it might just be time to consider a new interior redecorating scheme.
Under the roofs of the Lake County Fairgrounds exhibition halls, in a festively family-friendly atmosphere, all this and more is available, and continues to be a centralized concentration of opportunity for the public.
Business owners and passing public have the chance to meet, greet and converse over available services and products in a laid-back, fun setting open to all.
In addition to the interactive opportunities, the Expo also features a variety of educational activities in the form of demonstrations hosted by local experts.
On tap for this year’s Expo is a craft demo by A Country Home Floral owner Lacey Ringulet, as well as a sushi preparation demonstration by Shelley and Gary McCleese.
Door prize giveaways are also a major highlight for the event, with names drawn hourly for a variety of items donated by local businesses for the occasion.
Hours for this year’s Lake County Expo are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and admission remains at $4 for adults, while children 15 years and younger will be admitted for free.
