WPTV’s Annual Back to School Expo will take place Saturday, Aug. 4 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.at the Mall at Wellington Green.
WPTV’s expo is a one-day event that coincides with Florida’s tax-free shopping day. You can buy shoes and school supplies and not pay the state tax. While shopping, families can connect with public and private schools, trade schools, universities as well as health and education related companies and services.
“WPTV is proud to present our fourth annual Back to School Expo. We appreciate the Mall at Wellington Green, our business partners, and loyal viewers who help make this event such a success” said Lloyd Bucher, WPTV’s general manager.
As families make their way around the mall, they can meet with their favorite WPTV News anchors and reporters, connect with exhibitors, take-in cooking demonstrations by HealthStyle Partners, and enjoy local entertainment and several activities for kids.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office will be providing information on its child ID safety program. JCPenney will host a Back-to-School Fashion Show and Ginelle Ruffa, Miss Miami Beach 2017, will have an empowering health and fitness demonstration for all ages. Parents can also talk with experts from health service organizations to help prepare students for the upcoming school year.
The regional shopping mall is located at 10300 W. Forest Hill Blvd.
