Free Parking – Show organizers have arranged free parking for all of those who are attending this year’s event.
20+ Acre Outdoor Demonstration Area – Attendees can look at different products inside, then head on over to the outdoor demonstration area to test and compare those products for themselves.
Arborist Demos – The Women’s Tree Climbing Workshop will teach attendees professional climbing techniques on a 40-foot tree inside Freedom Hall.
Mutt Madness – The Kentucky Humane Society returns with Mutt Madness in Freedom Hall for a second year. Take a break from the show, and play with rescue dogs and even adopt a potential new best friend. Eleven dogs found new homes thanks to last year’s event.
