If you are a participant, it’s more like a 4 day show. The move in day is Thursday, setup day is Friday and show is Saturday and Sunday. There is a plan for everything and everyone is in place on Saturday morning. It’s a lot of work, but it’s a great show.Can't believe it's only a 1 3/4 day show. I'd love to go, but that's a lot of work for such a short show.
