Planning home spruce-ups or fix-ups, or yard or garden makeovers? The Denver Home Show at the National Western Complex runs Friday to Sunday, March 17 to 19 and is loaded with ideas, advice and inspiration. More than 300 exhibitors, vendors, seminars and demonstrations can be real motivators. On Friday only, all active and retired police, fire and military personnel (with a valid ID that you show at the box office) get in FREE. Forewarned: for the rest of us this show is pricey, with adults admission running $11, but there are a few ways to save. Buy in advance online and get $3 off an $11 adult ticket using the promo code GUIDE. Seniors 60+ get a “Buy One Ticket at $11, Get One Free” deal if they purchase at the box office. Children 12 and under enter for FREE. Parking will also cost you $10 at the National Western Complex, with shuttles provided to the more distant lots every 15 minutes. Show hours are Friday & Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 4655 Humboldt St. (exit I-70 at Brighton), Denver.
