MANKATO , MINN. -

The 20th annual Southern Minnesota Home and Builders show brought in quite the crowd this weekend.

Roofing, Flooring, plumbing and all your home improvement needs were all under one roof at the Verizon Wireless Center.

Around 350 booths took over the floor space at the Civic Center.

Vendors are hopeful that with the rising economy more property owners will be updating their homes.

Connie Hoffman, owner of Broad Street Brick and Patio says, "Mankato is kind of saturated as far as there are existing lots, so there's not a lot of that available, but there still is lots available to build on. I also see a lot more remodeling; I see a lot more updating."

Today was the last day of the event, the show closed up shop at 5:00 p.m.
