"Just walking around and talking to some of the vendors and getting their free stuff of course," said Sharon Forber, who came for a girls day with her daughter.
The two joined dozens of others at the US Cellular Coliseum for the first ever event, featuring almost 100 vendors.
Ashley Wilcox decided to get her nails done.
"I'm a college student so I'm studying a lot so this is a nice break after a long week," Wilcox said.
There was one booth that was especially popular.
"I was going to get a massage but he had somebody in the chair already so I have to come back later," said Denise Mabeles as she sampled tea.
She came to the Expo with a friend and said she loved all of the free goodie bags vendors were giving out. Mabeles said the $5 ticket price was well worth a rare day of 'me time.'
"Good price, good atmosphere," she said.
In between stops at the vendor booths people could also listen to seminars and speakers.
Sue Hubbard hosts a T.V. segment called 'The Kid's Doctor,' and stopped by to give some parental advice, offering ten tips to better parenting.
Hubbard is a practicing pediatrician and she also speaks publicly about healthy tips for kids.
Here's some of the advice she is sharing.
"I think the most important one and probably the hardest is model the behaviour you expect in your own children. Because you know from the time they're little infants on up they're watching us. And as a parent myself that was one of the first things I thought, you know, that they're watching how I act," Hubbard said.
She said the Woman's Expo was the perfect venue to get the community together for a day or relaxation. See some of Dr. Sue's segments here.
