Optimist Club’s Better Living Expo is this weekend

Offering home and garden innovations, fine arts and crafts, this year’s Better Living Expo will be at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center on Saturday and Sunday.

Presented by the Optimist Club of Salisbury, this 53rd annual show, an area tradition, will also feature area artisans.

Carlos the Juggler and clowns will perform. Animals from the Salisbury Zoo will also be there.

“There is definitely something for everyone. I encourage people to come out to see how they can improve their homes. There will be entertainment. It’s not just a home show. There will be something for the kids, too,” Vanessa Junkin, who handles public relations for the Civic Center, said.

Show hours are Saturday, Feb. 24, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 25, from 11 a.m.to 4 p.m.

The admission cost for the weekend is $2. Children will be admitted free.

Proceeds will support Optimist programs for youth in the community.

The home show is the Optimist Club’s biggest fundraiser.
