Plans for the 2012 Cornwall & Area Chamber of Commerce Spring Home & Leisure Show are well under way and there will be a full house of the latest in goods and services for area homeowners.

“The Chamber’s spring show gives Cornwall and area consumers a wonderful taste of the warm weather to come,” said Chamber Executive Manager Lezlie Strasser. “After having gone through a typical Cornwall winter, the Chamber team looks forward to presenting our colourful spring show for the community, one that attracts well over 6,000 visitors.”

More than 100 exhibitors will be featuring everything from patios, decks and gardens, to siding and roofs, windows and doors, BBQ’s, RV’s, boats and more.

Cooking Demonstrations

The Cooking with your Garden series was designed to show you how easy and fun it is to cook with vegetables and herbs from your garden. We’ve kept in mind what grows in Cornwall and SD&G, so you shouldn’t have to search very much to find these ingredients. All presentations will be held at the LoveLoveFood booth (on the ice surface).

Family Fun Zone

Check out the Family Fun Zone for the KidZone and all the activities to go with it. There will be face painting, bird house building, make your own pet rock and much more

Indoor Golf - Long Drive Championship

The popular indoor Long Drive Championship is back once again giving golfers and duffers alike a chance to show their stuff. The chamber has brought back the BBQ challenge with local would-be chefs, competing for bragging rights while at the same time, giving visitors delicious samples to enjoy.

BBQ Cook-Off

Amateur chefs will show off their skills at the 2nd annual Chamber Spring Show BBQ Cook-Off on Saturday March 31, 2012 from Noon to 2:00 pm.
