A wide array of activities will continue Friday during day two of the four-day Deseret News Home and Summer Living Show at the Salt Palace.
The show opened Thursday afternoon as crowds strolled among the booths that feature everything from homebuying or remodeling to summer recreation. Many enjoyed the first of numerous demonstrations by professionals with how-to-do-it instruction in a variety of projects.Sponsored in cooperation with the Home Builders Association of Great Salt Lake and the Newspaper Agency Corp., this year's free show is combined with the 1989 Showcase of Homes.
The Home Builders Association sponsors an information area with photographs of new homes constructed by its members. The new dwellings, featured in the organization's annual Showcase of Homes, are located throughout Salt Lake County and south Davis County.
The Home Builders Association's Remodeling Council, composed of architects, suppliers and remod-elers, presented the first of two informative seminars Thursday, with the second one scheduled Saturday. Several visitors brought sketches or plans for remodeling to gain professional tips for their project.
A popular seminar on how to install your own sprinkler system was presented Thursday by Sprinkler Supply Co. Other half-hour demonstrations will be presented daily with professionals providing information on a variety of subjects, such as home decorating, summer meals, residential lighting techniques and installing and maintaining tile.
Broadcasting live from the show is KSOP on FM104 and AM-1370.
A treasure hunt was greeted with enthusiasm by hundreds of visitors to the show Thursday and the game will continue daily. The hunt consists of clues - five different symbols printed on small yellow cards - placed prominently among the booths.
Those playing the game may pick up an entry form at the Deseret News Information Center, fill in the names of companies displaying a symbol and then place the entry in a box for a drawing. The first card drawn with the most correct answers wins a gas barbecue grill.
A new drawing is conducted daily.
This year's show has been expanded to four days to accommodate the crowds which attended previous exhibits. It continues Friday from noon to 9:30 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
