PORT ANGELES — The annual KONP Home Show will feature 110 home-improvement information booths this weekend.

Doors in the Port Angeles High School gymnasium, 304 E. Park Ave., will open at 9:30 a.m. and close at 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

The KONP Home Show, presented by the Clallam County Public Utility District, aims to help homeowners prepare for upgrading their properties this spring.

“We strive to make the show a real 'show for living,'” said Todd Ortloff, KONP general manager.

For 32 years, the KONP Home Show has served as a showplace for North Olympic Peninsula businesses to display their services and for prospective customers to gather information.

It typically attracts between 7,000 and 10,000 visitors each year.

Parking is located in the Port Angeles High student parking lots on the 200 and 300 blocks of East Park Avenue.

A free shuttle will take visitors to the gym.

30 new exhibitors

This year, the Home Show has added 30 new exhibitors, said Stan Comeau, sales manager for KONP AM and FM radio in Port Angeles, which sponsors and organizes the show.

Vendors located in four gymnasium areas and outdoors will tell visitors of a wide variety of services, including contractors, home-improvement supplies, home services, landscaping, pet care, health care options and home decor.

Food will be available from the Port Angeles Kiwanis Club.

Hopefully this year, the show will be as successful as last year, Comeau said.

“Even the weather seems to be in our favor,” he said, referring to a National Weather Service forecast high of about 46 degrees, with a 30 percent chance of light showers.

This year, there will be no major promotions or door prizes, as there have been in past years, Comeau said.

Instead, it will be a straightforward presentation of products and services.

The KONP Home Show started in 1982 at the Vern Burton Community Center and has grown each year since.
