Linda Sample of Jackson Township and Brenda Prine of Perry Township were among the first to step inside the 2018 Stark County Home and Garden Show Friday afternoon. They were not disappointed.

"So far, I've liked everything I've seen," said Prine. "The sunrooms are gorgeous. I just don't have room for one at my house."

Sample added, "It is very informative here. I am just seeing what they have out here."

In another area of the hall, Bill and Maggie Murphy of Canton were looking around at what the show had to offer.

"I love the displays," said Maggie Murphy.

"I like coming here because you get a lot of ideas" said Bill Murphy. "This is a nice show."

The show has everything, including a 5,000 pound, 15- to 18-foot section of a 50-foot white pine tree recently cut down in Jackson Township by Naturescapes Design's newest service, its tree service division.

A little down the aisle is Dublin Valley Wood, a first-time exhibitor to the show.

"We've had people stopping already," said Ivan Mast, owner. "We are the oldest builder in Holmes County. "

Inside the Classico Landscapers of Louisville exhibit, Teresa Marinakis of Canton was throwing ceramics.

"I feel like a princess doing this in such a beautiful surrounding," she said while demonstrating her work at the show. "When I throw at home, I like to work outside when the weather permits."

The Stark County Home and Garden Show is sponsored by the Canton Repository and the BIA of Stark County. Hours today are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. The show goes through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
