A business and community expo last week in Bell Gardens drew hundreds of residents and businesses interested in learning more about the services the city has to offer.

The Bell Gardens Business and Community Expo was moved to its new location, Veterans Park, which provide ample space and access.

Director of Community Development Abel Avalos told EGP that the event is a “stepping stone” for the city to attract businesses.

“The turnout was good,” he said, but added that in the future he hopes to work closer with the city’s business chamber “to get the word out and increase participation.

A number of local businesses participated with booth space, where they were able to share with current and potential customers information about their services and products,

The expo also included a health and lifestyle element, offering free blood pressure testing, a fitness demonstration and computer classes.
