Natchitoches’ Events Center was the place to be Saturday, February 29 for homeowners and future homeowners as Natchitoches’ first Home and Garden Expo got underway. The Home and Garden Expo, a project of the Natchitoches Chamber of Commerce, featured over 50 exhibitors, ranging from real estate professionals, to insurance agents, home repair companies, lawn equipment dealers, banks and many others. The Natchitoches Fire Department had a display as did the US Forest Service’s Kisatchie National Forest and The Census Bureau. There was truly a lot to see and do at the Expo.
Over 500 people came to the inaugural event as the advent of warmer weather turned homeowner’s minds to maintenance and improvement. Eventgoers had a chance to meet with firms covering the gamut of home ownership and community life all in one convenient place.
