It’s almost time for the 40th Annual West Michigan Home and Garden Show. It is returning to DeVos Place in downtown Grand Rapids.

“You can do anything and everything that you want. Whether you’re interested in gardening and landscaping or if you’re interested in home improvement and remodeling or you just have a repair, you can come down to the Home and Garden Show,” said senior show manager Carolyn Alt.
