As the temperatures slowly warm, many are starting to think about home improvement projects.
The Verizon Wireless Center in downtown Mankato is the site for the 19th annual Southern Minnesota Home and Builders Show.
Vendors from across the region set up displays showcasing their products and were there to give their expertise on everything from roofing to landscaping.
Attendees could also sit in on seminars for all their do–it–yourself questions.
Chuck and Becky Puchta were among those in attendance. They were looking at landscaping. "We're trying to build a backyard oasis, some place where you go sit and relax." Chuck Puchta says.
The show continues tomorrow and runs from Noon to 5:00 P.M. with seminars lasting from 12:30 to 3:30.
