The BEST of Fall Home Show opens today at the Ohio Expo Center and runs through Sunday, but tomorrow is not only Kids Day at the show with lots of great kid activities, it's also the Biggest Buckeye Nut Contest. What's the prize if you do indeed prove yourself to be the Biggest Buck-Nut? Try two great seats to THAT day's OSU vs. Miami football game, plus a limo ride to and from the Expo Center and Ohio Stadium, PLUS a five-pound candy Buckeye-on-a-Stick (we knew that would get your attention).

Registration takes place at the Home Idea Center Stage from 10-11:30 a.m., and then the contest begins at 12 noon. Basically you'll have to demonstrate your worthiness to be deemed the Biggest Buckeye Nut (demonstration materials include costumes, songs, dance routines and all-around insanity).

The BEST of Fall Home Show has more than 300 exhibits, attractions and events all weekend for families interesting in discovering new décor ideas, gathering money-saving tips for winterizing, shopping for accessories, and finding the right local contractor or home-improvement business to help achieve home improvement dreams. The BEST of Fall Home Show opens Friday, September 10, and runs through Sunday, September 12, at the Ohio Expo Center. Show hours are Friday Noon – 8 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Tickets are $5 at the door. Children ages 12 and under are admitted free. For FREE ADMISSION, complimentary tickets will be available at any Central Ohio Kroger Marketplace location beginning Saturday, August 28. For show information and ongoing updates, log on to
