Spring Showcase 2018 attracts thousands

By Patricia Leboeuf, Petawawa Post

Posted on Thursday May 17, 2018


The Petawawa Spring Showcase 2018, the Ottawa Valley’s largest home and leisure show, attracted about 10,000 visitors during its three-day run.

With about 190 vendors, it wasn’t surprising to see so many people come to the Petawawa Civic Centre on April 27, 28 and 29.

Shawn Gallant, owner of Gallant Media, took over the show in 2016 and is pleased to see so many new vendors attend. According to Gallant, the traditional event is a great way to boost the local economy and let the community know what type of services are offered locally as well as in nearby municipalities.
