The annual Fresno Home Remodeling & Decorating Show showers Central Valley homeowners with a fairgrounds' worth of innovative new products, services, and special seminars from contractors and suppliers. Upon arrival, pick up a list of exhibitors and embark on a two- to three-hour jaunt through aisles of inspiration from experts on topics as varied as gardening, pools and spas, solar electricity options, and backyard igloo construction. The show's organizers work closely with the contractors' state licensing board and the Better Business Bureau, encouraging attendance exclusively from merchants whose business practices soar, like a diver preparing for a world-record cannonball, well above-board.
