Next weekend's Southern Arizona Home Builders Association Home & Patio Show promises to be educational and entertaining with enough intriguing products to spur a little action on those spring projects.

Local companies will be displaying examples of their work and products, including some items that are new to the market.

What not to miss:

• Saturday at noon kids get to meet and mingle with Muno and Brobee from Nick Jr.'s "Yo Gabba Gabba."

• Remodelers' Row, where local remodeling professionals will be available to discuss your specific projects.

• Indian Information and Trade Center. Native American Crafts will be sold in the area with a tepee and dancing throughout the show.

• Valuable giveaways.

• White Elephant Shop, the popular Green Valley resale store, will be selling goods.

• Bring your used printer cartridges and cellphones. Tucson Clean & Beautiful is collecting them to benefit their education programs.
