Admission is $2 per adult, but children are free.

Anita House, chairperson for the expo, said the event will offer a range of vendors, with over 40 present.

"Our vendors range anywhere from vegetable starts ... all the way to your native perennials, to unique and unusual - we actually have a carnivorous plant vendor this year," House said.
