This is the 25th year of the Greater New Bedford Home Show at Voke Tech High School, and hundreds of area residents turned out on day one.

They were checking out some 75 exhibits, offering the latest in home improvements like kitchen replacements, windows, fire safety and more.

Roger Ouellette of New Bedford spent some time at the Home Show this weekend, and tells WBSM's Jim Phillips, he's done business with several exhibitors in the past.....

The Home Show also featured cooking demonstrations, and health and wellness displays by the YMCA.  The show continues Sunday from 11-4.

Its sponsored by the Greater New Bedford Area Chamber of Commerce.
