Stephenson Co. Home Show brings out more than 3,500 people
FREEPORT (WREX) -
Now that it's spring, it may be time to start some of those home projects you've been meaning to get to.
Many come out looking to do just that at the Stephenson County home show over the weekend. The annual show is free and has been going on for more than 20 years, with the last few at Highland Community College.
More than 80 vendors from throughout the Rockford and Chicagoland area set up, including landscapers, contractors, and more.
"I think it's great because if people have a project they want they can find everybody for every aspect of their project, and a lot of the vendors have specials running and they can get their projects done cheaper," said Jen Sheppard, the event organizer with ABC Advertising.
Organizers estimate nearly 3,500 people came out both Saturday, March 19 and Sunday, March 20 for the show.
