Kiwanis Home and Garden Show returns

There was only one place in Delta County where you could plan an entire kitchen remodel, rent lawn equipment and snag a sweet midway this past weekend. After a year off due to the pandemic, the Kiwanis Home and Garden Show returned to the Ruth Butler Building at the U.P. State Fairgrounds.

ESCANABA — The Kiwanis Home and Garden Show kicked off Friday and continued throughout the weekend.

Many of the vendors from years past made a return to the show, and a few new vendors were added to the show’s lineup.

However, in the interest of public safety, there were fewer vendors overall to allow for vendors to be spaced apart. Guests were 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.
