The annual P.E.I Provincial Home Show is underway in the Eastlink Centre in Charlottetown with 350 booths spread over the entire Trade Centre and covered ice surface.

The home show, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, has become a must-attend event for homeowners and prospective homeowners or simply those considering making some changes in their home.

In one corner of the arena there was a Skills P.E.I. carpentry competition where participants had to build a garden arch. There was even a guy with a chainsaw from New Brunswick carving baby deer out of a solid block of wood.

The home show closes at 4 p.m. Sunday.


Geographic location: Charlottetown, New Brunswick

    Hi Rachael, sorry to see you were upset with the home show story and photo. The photo that goes along with the story says who the carver is, the name of his company and where he lives. When I was speaking to him he never mentioned anything about winning awards.

    "There was even a guy with a chainsaw from New Brunswick ..." who does this reporting?! that "guy" from New Brunswick is award-winning chainsaw carver Joel Palmer.. not just "a guy"... From his website: "After entering my first competition - only two months after taking chainsaw carving seriously - I won first place overall at the 2012 Atlantic Canadian Chainsaw Sculpting Championships (Fredericton, NB)." Google Swamp Bear Art to see more of his work!
