There will be something for everyone at this weekend's Lloydminster Exhibition Showcase, which features a variety of exhibitor booths offering goods related to leisure, sports, hunting and decorating

The Showcase is back and this time around the event has added new features to extend its appeal.
The usual outdoorsman sessions will be taking place for those interested and this year will see the new DIY stage that will offer sessions with tips that can be used around the home.
“We’re really excited about this year, we’ve made some changes to some of our sessions so we really think that we’ve enhanced it for everybody who would be wanting to come out,” said Tess Wack, marketing specialist with the Lloydminster Agricultural Exhibition Association.
Christina Dennis, the DIY Mommy, has been running a blog since 2009 and according to he profile she writes about making things for “mommy, or baby and for home.”
Dennis has had her work in home decor publications and last year was named Western Canada’s Next Home Stylist.
Keep an eye out for her on the Spectrum Restoration DIY stage this weekend.
“We’ve kind of implemented that more for people who weren’t as interested in the hunting part and so with that we have the DIYMommy coming in and she’s giving tips on decorating home on a budget, decorating it with kids in mind,” said Wack.
“As well, the ladies from Real Deals here in Lloydminster will be coming and giving sessions on their chalk paintings they sell in the store, and they’ve done some really neat things with it, so we thought it would be a fun time.”
The Outdoorsman stage is also back with three experts who will be giving sessions trapping, knife making and hunting.
Richard Mellon is the cohost of Trapping Inc and Outdoor Quest TV and will be alternating sessions with knife maker Ed Storch and outdoor adventurer Anthony Springer.
Mellon is an experienced trapper who lives remotely in a cabin that is powerless aside from a generator and cuts his own firewood for heat.
Storch is a knife expert who makes all the knives he sells by hand and tests the edges personally to assure the quality of his product.
He’ll be doing sessions on how to make knives throughout the weekend.
Finally, hunting videographer and guide Anthony Springer will talk about how he started out as a freelance videographer as well as talk about his time and adventures in the great outdoors.
Aside from the speaker sessions the Showcase will also have more than 130 different vendors to check out and different kinds of food to try.
“We have new exhibitors, Sellers RV is back again with their indoor super sale, and we have a lot of the returning exhibitors that everybody loves,” said Wack.“We just really think it’s going to be a great show.”
The Showcase takes place from April 1 to 3 with an $8 admission and kids 12 and under get in free.
