Virtual CNY Home & Garden Show set for April


Just in time for spring, the 2021 Virtual CNY Home & Garden Show brings together a wide variety of local home improvement specialists right to your home.

Running April 18 through May 9, the show brings the same vendors traditionally found at its in-person events. A Grand Opening week will feature several giveaways, said Mary Thompson, executive director of the HBR of CNY.
