Hundreds of patrons are today flocking to the Concord Experience for the second and final day of Girlfriends Expo.
At yesterday’s opening the ladies donned traditional Hawaiian garlands in keeping with this year’s theme, ‘Aloha’.
Over 100 exhibitors showcased a diverse selection of products including jewelery, liquors, beauty and hair products and virtual games.
Booths such as the Nail Bar provided manicure and pedicure services on location, while the children were treated to paint parties from Artist Made Barbados.
Other ladies, as well as some of the men present, participated in workout sessions from Fitness Bunnies.
Another attraction was the Girl Power Mixologist Competition.
While it was a fun day out for girlfriends, organisers also hosted ‘feminars’ which shared expert advice on sexuality, physical health and finance.
Event director, Kimtara Clarke, told Barbados TODAY that the expo, which is now into its ninth year, has achieved its objective to empower women.
“When you build stronger women, you build stronger children and they grow up to be stronger adults,” said Clarke.
“We are Girlfriends Expo and Girlfriends Foundation but we are about family and that’s what is important to us,” she added.
The proceeds from Girlfriends Expo will go towards the Girlfriend Foundation, a charity which helps young female entrepreneurs and troubled women in need of assistance.
