The third annual Lawn, Garden and Home Show kicked off Friday evening at the Douglas County 4-H Fairgrounds.

Dozens of vendors from Lawrence and beyond will be showing their wares this weekend to homeowners who are looking for renovation ideas for the interior and exterior of their homes.

"It's a one-stop shop," said Bobbie Flory, executive director of the Lawrence Home Builders Assn.

The majority of participating businesses are from Lawrence, but a few traveled from Topeka and Kansas City to the fairgrounds, 21st and Harper streets.

"This is an excellent opportunity for folks to come out and see local businesses here in the community that can help them out -- from plumbing, electrical, putting in windows, flooring to all kinds of stuff outside from the garden show," said show chairman John Harman.
