Sacramento heads to health fair and parade

October 18, 2018 by  

The upcoming Health & Wellness Fair will be a combination of events, from the talent show and basketball tournament, to the parade and contests.

Although admission to the fair will be free, attendees must RSVP online for all events. Free goodie bags will go to those who sign up early.

Many participants are busily getting their banner printing done and costumes assembled so they will have something to enter in the Banner Contest and Costume Contest.

After the opening ceremony, the fair will start the free activities. Local businesses, associations and health and fitness organizations will be passing out information about lifestyle, education and awareness. Nutritionists will be on hand as consultants, and there will be health screenings. Free hotdogs will be in the Healthy Kids Fun Zone, which will also include include an obstacle course and a rock wall. A food demonstration, safety promotion program, and a finance workshop will be held too.

Contests will include a hoop contest, a three-on-three hoop tournament and a talent show. A raffle will have prizes such as $100 gas cards and $100 grocery cards.

The Fair is scheduled for October 20 at 9000 La Riviera Drive. Healthy Walk Parade Kick Off 2018 will begin at 8:00 am. The Health Fair will open at 10:00 am, and the basketball tournament and talent show will be from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm.
