The weather outside might have been gloomy, but inside the 2019 Grove Area Chamber of Commerce Home & Garden Show thoughts of spring were in full bloom as area vendors showcased their wares. 

Donnie Crain, president of the Grove Area Chamber of Commerce, said chamber officials received a good response to the show from vendors and participants alike.

"It was a very good weekend for Grove from the show itself," Crain said. "Better yet, the jobs and leads from the show will truly result in hundreds of thousands of dollars in real estate sales and property improvements both here in Grove and around Grand Lake in future months."

Here's a few scenes from the event which drew more than 1,6000 to the Grove Civic Center during the three-day event.
