This weekend marks the 18th annual Fall Home Show at the Salem Civic Center.
The Roanoke Regional Home Builders Association puts on the event as a way for people to find out more about building, remodeling or even just enhancing their homes- all in one place.
There was a building project set up just for kids and even a blood drive. This year about 96 vendors took part in the event, something organizers say helps get people even more excited.
"It's a family event. There's a lot of free giveaways," says Fall Home Show chairman, Christine Wade. "It's a great way to save on gas and not have to run out to all these businesses. You get a pocket full of business cards you can use when you're ready to do any type of home improvement."
The masked ISIS militant who appears to be shown beheading American journalist Steve Sotloff spoke on video before killing him, saying, “just as your missiles continue to strike our people our knife will continue to strike the necks of your people."
The Islamic State militant group released a video Tuesday that it claimed shows the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff.
