A great way to dive into Spring at the Home and Lifestyle show

The Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce’s Golden Spring Home and Lifestyle Show is just around the corner.

The Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce’s Golden Spring Home and Lifestyle Show is just around the corner, and it is shaping up to have a little bit of everything to keep you occupied for the entire weekend.

If you are looking for an exciting shopping extravaganza… a central place to browse and maybe pick up a few unique items, or you just want to hang out… gather your friends and head down to the trade show on April 14 and 15.

“We’ve moved the show to the Golden Curling Club. The ice is off the rink now, and it’s a perfect size for the show,” said Ruth Hamilton, manager of the Chamber office in Golden.

“Everything else is going to be the same, there will be lots of booths and exhibitors, and the entertainment stage.”

The best deal around town will be the Golden Spring Home and Lifestyle Show. It is all free, free  admission, a free community pancake breakfast and free child minding. You can enjoy samples, demonstrations and lots of free advice for all aspects of your life whether it is a home renovation or a lifestyle program.

And at each booth you will be able to enter your name to win a free prize from the exhibitor.

The Golden Spring Home and Lifestyle Show is family friendly and we have partnered up to ensure the show is fun for those little people too. Child minding is supported by the Golden Employment Centre, Golden Childcare Resource Society, the Early Childhood Development Coalition and Elite Nutrition.

The ever creative child minders are Jared and Robyn, the Imaginicians. They will have a stimulating lineup of crafts and stories.

Each day there will be an exciting array of live entertainment, with new performers starting every hour.

Pack up the family on Sunday morning and bring them down for a free community pancake breakfast served up by the Rotary Club. You can even stop by for lunch; both days the gang from the Bugaboo Cafe will be serving up some scrumptious edibles at the concession.

The Board of Directors from the Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce will be holding several raffles. Enter to win a Kicking Horse Country Experience Package; chock-full of gift certificates for you and your family to create many enjoyable memories this upcoming summer.

Watch out for the 50/50 progressive raffle growing throughout the show, the winner will be drawn at 4 p.m. on Sunday.

The show will have something for everyone with two full days to check out the home improvement ideas from a local expert or visit one of our many lifestyle exhibitors to discover valuable lifestyle choices.

Keep your eyes out for the Green Vendor placard identifying the eco-friendly businesses sponsored by BC Hydro.

I just want people to know that it isn’t just about spending money. You can come on by, have some food, browse the booths, socialize and watch the entertainment while your kids are being taken care of,” said Hamilton.
