Does your house belong on HGTV — maybe as the “before” picture? Then don’t wait for reality television to come knocking. Visit this annual expo with more than 200 booths featuring fun things including pools, spas, fire pits and sunrooms, as well as necessities such as pest control, foundation repair, gutters and heating and air conditioning. Browse displays of landscaping and water features, meet pets up for adoption, shop the GoTexan marketplace and watch presentations by Alison Victoria of DIY Network’s Kitchen Crashers and HGTV’s Windy City Flip.
Tickets are $5 online, free for kids 16 and younger.
