Home Improvement Show - Prizes
The 18th Home Improvement Show is coming to the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center August 17 – 19.  This show features over 90 exhibitors in new home construction, remodeling and home improvement of all kinds.  If you are planning to remodel or fix up your home, this is the one-stop shop for you!
