It’s too early for blooming spring flowers.

The ice remains a heavy blanket on area lakes. Summer vacation plans have yet to take shape. But one of the Northland’s spring milestones continues today at the Bemidji Jaycees’ Home, Sport and Travel Show, which winds down a three-day run. The 36th annual show, with more than 100 vendors, offers the latest gadgets, gear, equipment, services and ideas to enjoy life, both indoors and out. Doors will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Sanford Center. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for kids aged 6-15, and free for those under 5.
