A number of different entertainment options will be available for attendees, including the opportunity to take immersive virtual reality tours, a designated “Kids Corner” for children to create arts and crafts project to be given to veterans boarding the next Southern Illinois Honor Flight and various performances scheduled throughout the weekend. The Expo will also be partnering with the Veterans Honor Flights of Southern Illinois to host a ceremony honoring local veterans on Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
Exhibitors from all over the region will be displaying and selling their innovative products, unique creations, and tasty treats and showcase fabulous Southern Illinois destinations.
The event is also open to the general public – giving everyone the opportunity to experience firsthand the quality of unique products made by Southern Illinois artists, designers, and manufacturers and the beauty of Southern Illinois destinations.
