SUN CITY WEST, ARIZ. -- The annual spring PORA Vendor Expo is now expanding into the fall for the first time and getting a new name as the Sun City West Fall Fest & Business Expo.
“We’re adding the pet adoptions, food trucks, to make it more of a fall fest fun event,” said PORA Executive Director Annie Vaugier. “At the same time, we’ll have our vendors there. They usually get a lot out of our activities, that’s why there’s still a waiting list to get in.”
The expo will have 72 vendors with 27 on a waiting list.
The fall fest and expo will take place inside and outside on Saturday, Oct. 15 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Shepherd of the Hills United Methodist Church, 13658 W. Meeker Blvd.
Ms. Vaugier said PORA is also partnering with the North County Fire & Medical District who will feature a health and safety fair that will include demonstrations and seminars from 9 a.m. to noon.
PORA will then have two seminars, one from noon to 1 p.m. and another from 1 to 2 p.m.
“We’re going to have some golf cart safety demonstrations,” added Ms. Vaugier.
PORA has only had the expos during the spring for many years.
“We’re looking forward to a very successful presentation,” said PORA Director Marion Mosley.
