YAKIMA, Wash. — This year’s Central Washington Home and Garden Show gets underway Friday at the Yakima Valley SunDome.

The 32nd annual event will draw 120 vendors with information about building new homes, renovating, gardening and landscaping.

This year’s theme is “Deconstructed,” with a focus on the foundational materials that go into home and garden projects, said Chelsea Snodgrass, public relations director for the Central Washington Home Builders Association, which organizes the event.

Hours are noon to 6 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

The event will include live demonstrations and presentations. Seminar topics include the top 10 trees and shrubs for this area, HVAC maintenance, solar power, what first-time homebuyers should know, and hiring a contractor.

“From smaller projects to a custom build, we’ve got it all, and all of the supporting businesses that make it happen,” Snodgrass said.

Kids’ activities are planned over the weekend, with Lego competitions, a STEM class and hands-on activities presented by the Yakima Area Arboretum.

“Antique alley” will be back again this year through a partnership with Clayson Farm, she said.

Tickets cost $12 for adults and $10 for military personnel and those 55 and older. Kids 12 and younger are admitted free.
