Jan. 21—The Regional Dwelling and Backyard present has been canceled for the primary time because it started 32 years in the past.
The Dwelling Builders Affiliation of Tri-Cities was set to carry the annual present in late February, however COVID restrictions and security compelled its cancellation.
The three-day occasion attracts 10,000 guests and about 250 exhibitors every year.
“Due to the present restrictions on indoor gatherings, the board noticed no viable path ahead for the present,” stated Jeff Losey, the affiliation’s government director.
Losey added that shifting the present to a later date this 12 months was not manageable as a result of landscapers and exhibitors can be too busy through the spring and the present would then come too near the autumn present.
The affiliation’s Fall Dwelling Present is ready Oct. 1-3 on the HAPO Middle in Pasco. Subsequent 12 months’s Dwelling & Backyard Present is Feb. 25-27.
