Lake Norman News, Events and Celebrations

Southern Ideal Fall Home Show is August 27-29, 2010

 After such an unusually hot summer here in the Lake Norman area when my free time has been spent nurturing my Wildlife Habitat Garden just to keep it alive, I am looking forward to being inspired once again by the Southern Ideal Home show being held at The Park (the old Charlotte Merchandise Mart) this weekend, August 27-29.

Better known for their magnificent Southern Spring Garden Show, this fall show will also offer”hundreds of experts and thousands of ideas for building, remodeling, landscaping or decorating projects for inside and outside the home all in one place.” according to an article on

They will have a Cooking Stage for demonstrations from top chefs, wine sampling from North Carolina wineries and so much more!
