BLOOMINGTON – Home Show 2012 will mark its 25th year with more than 250 booths at U.S. Cellular Coliseum, 101 S. Madison St.

The show, Friday through Sunday, offers one-stop shopping under one roof. Home Show is sponsored by the Bloomington-Normal Area Home Builders Association and The Pantagraph.

Featuring everything for the inside and outside of the home, this family-oriented event has something for everyone, said Terri Haerr, the newspaper’s marketing services coordinator.

“Show-goers can talk with experts about how to finance a building project, landscape yards, install windows, add a deck or sunroom, or decorate a room – the possibilities are endless,” she said.

Attendees will have the chance to win a $500 shopping spree for use at any exhibitor.

The Red Cross will host a special blood drive at the Coliseum from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Those interested in donating should call 309-662-0500.

Show admission is $6 for adults 18 and older and free for those younger than 18. Parking is also free. Show hours are 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
