More than 80 vendors and variety of demonstrations to take place during event

(Oct. 4, 2019) The second annual WBOC Shore Living Expo will be held at the Ocean City convention center on 40th Street, this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“Shore Living Expo celebrates ‘Health, Wealth and Home,’” Event organizer Stephanie McVey said. “This is a free event where you can get information for your home, for your family and for your health.”


Last year was the inaugural Shore Living Expo.

Over 80 vendors will be selling their merchandise during the event. The show was created by WBOC to provide local vendors and businesses a chance to share their products and services or interact with people on a face-to-face basis, McVey said.

Some of the vendors who will be at the show include Delaware Elevators, Atlantic General Hospital, the Ward Museum ib Salisbury, Johnny Janosik Furniture and Peninsula Regional Health System.

“We will have vendors [ranging] from home improvements to boats, cars and finance, and some great, original craft booths to go shopping,” McVey said.

A taping of DelmarvaLife will be shown from noon to 2 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center.

Last year, around 1,500 people attended, but McVey estimates there will be more guests this year.

There will also be several demonstrations taking place throughout the day, including piano lessons by Mark Gratton, a spooky tour about Ripley’s Believe it or Not ghost tours, dog training advice from K-9 experts and a workshop about making paper flowers.

Attendees could also win one of several prizes including a one-week Carnival Cruise out of Baltimore, a free makeover provided by the Delaware Learning Institute of Cosmetology and four-pack tickets to Ripley’s Believe it or Not. There will be other giveaways and prizes presented during the event.
