FAIRFIELD — Hundreds attended the Total Home and Garden Show on the second day of the weekend event.

With more than 300 exhibits, the Total Home and Garden Show has pretty much anything and everything a person could want for their home or outdoors areas. For those not interested in home decor, there is an interactive kids corral, petting zoo, jumpy house, Boy Scouts “Space Exploration, cooking demonstrations and tree-climbing expedition.

The Saturday schedule included a raffle and giveaway from the KUIC 95.3 radio station, Cesar Chavez Design demonstration of “Do it Yourself” workshop, Solano County Sheriff’s Department K-9 showcasing the dog’s abilities and Chef Brian Jaco demonstrating the art of chicken and turkey sandwiches.

All weekend long the Solano County Animal Care Division will be on hand for pet adoptions. More than 20 dogs and 15 cats are in need of adoption. The animals have all been evaluated on their behavior and temperament. The animals are vaccinated and spayed or neutered. The cost of adoptions are half-price this weekend. The fee for cats normally is $80, and for dogs it is $95. Adoptions include a free five-week obedience-training class.

Todd Moore, of Ye Old Strip Shop in Vacaville, was surprised by the showing.

“I didn’t expect this many people,” he said.

His exhibit has refinished furniture, including chests, desks and chairs.

“They gave us a huge space. I would have brought more stuff had I known how much room we had,” he said.

Sunday’s final day will include a visit by the Easter Bunny, a tree-service demonstration and a food court. Visitors will also have the opportunity to give blood from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event is located in the old Walmart building at 300 Chadbourne Road in Fairfield.
