Representatives from 7NBC, CW56 & Partners Healthcare - along with Boston Celtics great, Bill Russell - cut the ribbon to signal the start of the inaugural 2007 Health & Fitness Expo!
Making special appearances throughout the weekend were stars of sports, music and the TV screen: Teddy Bruschi of the New England Patriots, America's Next Top Model winner CariDee, Keith Lockhart and Shonda Schilling -to name a few.
The Dish Healthy Cooking Stage
Top chefs from some of Boston's hottest restaurants teamed up with 7NBC's Frances Rivera at the Health Expo to show some healthy recipes you can make at home - and boy did it smell good!
Gretta's Got It Style Stage
Gretta Monahan from 7NBC's Gretta's Got It gave attendees two fabulous days of beauty and fashion tips, including the 411 on everything from hair and skin care to what to wear!
Throughout the Partners Expo exhibit area, attendees experienced exciting, educational, and fun activities for all ages and interests. Family Health, Medicine of the Future, Sports Medicine and Family Safety were just a few of the themes that kept this one of the busiest areas on the Expo floor!
A big 'Thank You' to all of our participating sponsors who made the Expo experience come alive with free medical testing and interactive events: Hannaford and CVS; the Ford Snow Dome and the Yoplait Dance Place; the Chrysler Scuba Tour and the Frontline Pet Pavilion; Sleepy's and Hood Simply Smart.....and so much more!
Our anchors & reporters from 7NBC and CW56 were pleased to have the opportunity to meet all those who watch us every day. What a pleasure it was to greet & speak to each and every one of you as we together enjoyed this unique and wonderful Expo experience!
7 Weather Center
Quite possibly the centerpiece of the 7News area - and drawing the biggest crowds of the weekend - was the 7 Weather Green Screen, where kids of all ages became weather boys and girls for a day. After being coached by one of the 7 Weather team, everyone had the chance to give a 'live' weather forecast, complete with a take-home DVD!
