Golden Home and Lifestyle Show almost here

The Golden Home and Lifestyle Show is set to happen in Golden on April 26-27.

The Golden Home and Lifestyle Show is set to happen in Golden on April 26-27.

After months of planning things are coming together for the event, according to the manger of the Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce, Ruth Hamilton.

“The planning for the show is going great. We are almost sold out with only a couple of booths up for grabs. If you would like to showcase your business or organization to over 1,000 target local shoppers, stop by the KHCCC this week to snatch up that last spot,” she said.

Hamilton sees the event as a great weekend to promote local business, and provides the best value for advertising.

“Yes it’s a long and challenging weekend, but the long term benefits for your business are huge. If you don’t at least consider it, you are really missing out,” she said.

Hamilton added the show will have some great vendors that will have great items for the camping season and more.

“It is spring! This is an event to encompass the community after a long winter. We want people to come to the show, enjoy some music, catch up with friends and acquaintances and celebrate the change in season.”

On Friday night the Town of Golden Spring Community Connections Night will be taking place right next door to the Golden Curling Club in the Golden Arena Lobby.

There will also be different entertainment and demonstrations on stage every hour at the event.

“I have been speaking to lots of people and the details will be in the April 24 Golden Spring Home & Lifestyle Show centre pullout of the Golden Star. So far I have the Mel Hynes and The Kootenay Legends, Zumbatonic , Shape Up Fitness and yoga demonstrations,”

Hamilton said.

If you would like to sign up to perform an act or do a children’s activity please feel free to contact the chamber of commerce in Golden at 250-344-7125.

There will also be events for children who will be at the show.

“Jane Frances Powell with Wildsight will be having seed planting activities for the children, there will be Zumbatonic and child friendly yoga,” Hamilton said.

The College of the Rockies hairdressing class will be raising funds for the Cops for Kids, and people are encouraged to visit the College of the Rockies booth at the event.

There will be a free community pancake breakfast on Saturday morning for all to enjoy. The breakfast event is sponsored by Columbia Basin Trust and the food will be prepared to perfection by the Golden Rotary Club.
