It's a winter tradition.

The annual Bitterroot Building Industry Association's Home and Ranch Expo brings homeowners, contractors, builders and others together for what turns into a Saturday of people brainstorming on how to make their homes better.

The BBIA 2017 Expo opened Friday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. for an evening session. But Saturday is the big day at the Ravalli County Fairgrounds Event Center, with hours from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Angela Previte, Executive Officer of the BBIA, said the show again this year has a wide range of services and products.

Walking through the aisles, I saw everything from cabinets to hot tubs, financing to landscaping.

The show has over 70 vendors and admission is $2 or two cans of food. There are free items for those who attend and plenty of advice and help from local businesses.

Get in out of the weather and enjoy!
