All throughout the weekend 130 vendors will be set up at the Northern Michigan University Superior Dome to show off their services! Looking to get a new pole building? Looking to remodel your kitchen? Maybe your next project is replace the floors in your bathroom. Maybe you’re looking to build a whole new house, or you want information on insurance for the house you already built!
