SURF CITY — An event planned for this weekend in Surf City began with a goal of bringing people to town during a quiet winter month in the beach town.

Seven years later, Surf City Parks & Recreation’s annual Women’s Expo has become a popular event that showcases area businesses and services and serves as a fund-raiser for a community project.

The expo will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Surf City Community Center. Admission is $3 per person.

“We like it and it’s for a good cause. A lot of hard work goes into it but the payback is even better,” said Kristie Grubb, the town’s director of parks and recreation.

Grubb said they started the Women’s Expo to help increase the winter activity in the town and it has continued to grow.

“When we first started we didn’t have many events in the area this time of year so we felt let’s try something,” she

Despite bad weather that had them wondering if they should cancel the first year, the event drew a crowd of 125 people and received good reviews.
