Every year we invest a little of our tax refund into home improvement to increase the value of our home. This weekend at the Maine Home and Remodeling Show at the Cross Insurance Arena, you'll meet a lot of talented businesses that specialize in everything from insulation, lighting, contracting, landscaping, green homes and much more. Check out home improvement seminars, an Artisan marketplace, over 180 exhibitors and the 13th Annual Meet the Chefs Cooking Series featuring some of Portland's most amazing chefs. Details and schedules for the events are here. It's a wonderful way to spend a Saturday or Sunday, whether you need to work on the home that you have, or you're planning to build. It's a cheap date too, buy your tickets at the door, only $8 for adults, $6 for seniors and $5 for kids 6-16. Protect your investment in your home by finding the services and products you need this weekend at the Cross Insurance Arena, Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 10-4.
