The weather was cold outside, but the crowd was steady and warm inside at Saturday's annual Bitterroot Building Industry Home & Ranch Expo.

The show ran Friday evening and all day Saturday. The booths from area construction and sub-contractors and others presented their services and answered questions about projects throughout the day.

There were booths from hot tubs to home construction and from siding to solar panels. The Expo also gathered cans of food for the Haven House Food Bank in Hamilton.

This is one of the larger trade shows at the Ravalli County Fairgrounds in the spring.

Of course, KLYQ is preparing our annual Bitterroot Valley Spring Extravaganza March 22. If your business would like to be in the event, call our studio in Hamilton (406) 363-3010.

This year, the show will again have an "eclectic" offering of booths, professionally draped. There will be Health and Fitness, Home and Garden and Equine, Tack & Feed.

We'll have more about the show here on the website, our Facebook page and on the air at KLYQ 1240 AM.
