Your next home improvement job could get a little easier with help from one man attending a local event this weekend.


The 2014 Spring Home and Patio Show is open through Sunday at the Prime Osborn Convention Center in downtown Jacksonville.

There are a lot of new exhibits this year, including food trucks, interior design help and couponing advice.

There will also be a cooking stage that allows chefs and cooks from across the region to give out free samples and entice customers with their culinary creations.

Channel 4's Richard Nunn will be doing a live "Culinary Nunnsense" demonstration at 1:30 p.m. Friday.  It will be in the Jacksonville Magazine Kitchen. He's featuring sweet potato latkes, shredded corned beef and a steamed cabbage stew.

Cristian Moore, Home & Patio Show manager, revealed Ahmed Hassan from HGTV's hit show "Yard Crashers" will present the Do-It-Yourself tailgating demonstration.

"They're bringing back the DIY booth because it was a big success last fall," Moore said.

The Arc, a non-profit organization that provides opportunities for people with intellectual and development disabilities, will showcase its art.  It will also show visitors  how they make refurbished furniture.

The Daniel Kids Foundation, which offers services for children and families, will tell people about its program and recruiting families into the fold.

The show runs 11 a.m- 9 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 10 a.m-9 p.m Saturday. Sunday doors will be open 10 a.m to 6 p.m. 

You can get more information or buy tickets at the Jacksonville Home & Patio Show website.
