Home is where the heart is, unless that home is filled with adept man-eaters. Refinish your cardiac cavity with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets for a single-day admission (up to a $20 value) to the Jacksonville Home & Patio Show, which runs March 3–6 at the Prime F. Osborn III Convention Center. Children 5 and younger get in free.
With tons of exhibitors and a main stage showcasing numerous events and attractions, the Jacksonville Home & Patio Show quells decoration disquietude and home-repair rancor. The show dutifully plays host to the latest product lines, and features displays on interior design, renovation, and home entertainment. Flower fanatics can get expert tips on the latest floral arrangement techniques, and herbivorous junkies can glean inspiration from a 3,500-square-foot garden equipped with a pool, fireplace, and stunning shrubbery. William Moss, host of HGTV’s Dig In, and a gaggle of other celebrity guests and local gurus answer questions and lead seminars on the dos and don’ts of home renovation, design trends for 2011, and training homes to growl at suspicious passersby. For those travelling with landscaping tykes, the Home & Patio Show also boasts an arcade gaming area for entertaining little ones and young-at-heart adults looking to challenge their old Donkey Kong high scores.
Though Jacksonville Home & Patio Show sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
