The annual Bitterroot Building Industry Association Home & Ranch Expo will fill up the First Interstate Event Center at the Ravalli County Fairgrounds February 5 and 6.

The popular show will have its Friday evening opening from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and then will be open all day Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission this year will be $2 or two cans of food - to benefit the Bitterroot Youth Home in Hamilton.

It's the 14th annual showcase of builders, contractors sub-contractors and others who do business in the Bitterroot Valley. Each year, at least 70 booths are in the event center, and there are hourly give-aways - including propane from Axmen Propane and an area rug from Pierce Flooring and Design.
