It was an active day in Port Jefferson Saturday as folks took to the Chamber of Commerce’s big annual Health & Wellness Festival at the high school, which was followed by sidewalk sales throughout the village.
The sidewalk sales, billed as the first-ever in Port Jefferson, were run by the Port Jefferson Retailers Association, which was formed last year.
Health & Wellness Fest attracted people from all the major hospitals, as well as other medical specialists and fitness groups, such as Authentic Shaolin Kung Fu in Holtsville.
This was the festival’s 9th year at the high school. (Scroll down for photos.)
“This is a great community event and I’m fortunate to be the chairman of the committee this year, as well as the chamber president,” said Jim Karras. “Our area is quickly becoming a mecca for health facilities.
“And I think ours is the only health and wellness event, that I know of, that is sponsored by three major hospitals, so it’s becoming a big thing,” he added.
