The sunny, cool and then rainy weather on the weekend, meant good attendance at the annual Kincardine Home and Garden Show, hosted by the Kincardine Skating Club on Saturday and Sunday.

About 72 vendors had displays of everything from gardening designs and supplies to windows and doors to home renovations to garden tractors.

If you were tired of searching through home and garden ideas, there were delicacies to sample at The Tartan Toad, Truffles to Live By, Robertson's Kettle Corn, and Epicure Selections, as well as children's crafts, demonstrations, door prizes, and a silent auction.

Organizers were pleased with the turn-out and said the number of vendors and visitors was about the same as last year.

Winner of the grand prize of a barbecue and gazebo, donated by Tim-Br Mart, was Sharon McDonald of Kincardine.

The children's prize, donated by Modern Appliances and Electronics of Hanover, was won by Natasha Pletch of Walkerton.
