The wet, windy weather was good news for the Kincardine Skating Club as it drew hundreds of people indoors for the annual Kincardine Home and Garden Show, "There's No Place Like Home."

Held Saturday and Sunday at the Davidson Centre, the show featured about 60 vendors in the Kincardine Hall and on the arena floor, with demonstrations and seminars, and a craft corner for the children. The exhibitors included everything from appliances, windows and doors, to fudge, photography and heritage.

There was also a silent auction, with a wide array of items donated by the vendors.
