For the kids, KGY Radio has partnered with Jumping Jacks to have a bounce house on site.

For the first time, OMB has partnered with Concern for Animals (CFA) to bring Bark-A-Tecture and Catscapes to the 2012 OMB BIG Home and Garden Show!  All structures have been thoughtfully crafted by OMB members and CFA volunteers.  At the show, the public will be able to use their dollars to vote for their favorite dog house or catscape, with proceeds going to CFA.

From now until the show opens, our friends at Westfield Capital have offered space to preview two of the Bark-A-Tecture and Catscape entries prior to the show!  The display is in front of the Old Navy store until the Home Show starts on September 15.  Stop by to preview the houses, and pick up a $2 off coupon for the show!

At the conclusion of the Home Show, the houses will be back at the mall for further viewing, until they are sold to the highest bidder at the Concern for Animals’ Toast for Tails auction on November 10.

Several discounts on admissions are being offered.  Coupons for a $2.00 admission discount are widely available online at, at vendor showrooms and the Olympia Master Builders office on State Avenue in Olympia. Early bird admission price: everyone who arrives at the show between 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. on Saturday will receive half-off admission. Senior Day is Sunday, and Seniors will get in for half-off the regular admission price all day. OMB is proud to support our local military personnel, and will offer a Military Discount of half-off regular admission price throughout the entire event.  Don’t forget – kids under 12 will be admitted free!
