Kiwanis Home and Garden Show returns
ESCANABA — The Kiwanis Home and Garden Show kicked off Friday and will continue throughout the weekend. The free event continues Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Ruth Butler Building on the U.P. State Fairgrounds.
Many of the vendors from years past will be making a return to the show, and a few new vendors have been added to the show’s lineup. However, in the interest of public safety, there will be fewer vendors overall to allow for vendors to be spaced apart. Guests will also be required to wear masks and practice social distancing themselves.
The Home and Garden Show, which has been an annual event put on by the Escanaba Noon Kiwanis and sponsored by American Metal Roofs of Northern Wisconsin, was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Prior to that, the Kiwanis also hosted Pancake Days in conjunction with the event. The community pancake feed served and cooked by Kiwanis members attracted hundreds of people. For 2021, pancakes will still be available, but they will be sold by Skerbeck Entertainment Group along with other fair-style foods.
