The Buy Local Health and Fitness Festival, sponsored by the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce, was held Saturday at the Santa Monica Civic Center. It featured dozens of local businesses and organizations promoting a variety of activities, from yoga to biking.
Half-hour demonstrations were featured on a main stage, from Zumba to ballroom dancing. Booths also included banks and loan service companies, who were there to promote financial health. Food trucks and some local food vendors presented healthy eating choices for festival goers, who flocked to snatch up gluten-free pizza samples from Fresh Brothers.
