Fall’s in the air, the Halloween season’s in full swing—and it’s time once again to celebrate healthy living in downtown Hartford!
On October 28, the XL Center will be hosting the 2017 NBC Connecticut Health & Wellness Festival, an all-ages expo going down 9 AM to 4 PM. For ultra-convenient accommodations within easy reach of the venue, turn to the Goodwin: You’ll be literally just a few steps from the XL Center.
Health Screenings to a Family 5K
The NBC Connecticut Health & Wellness Festival is free to attend and delivers a real steal of a deal: a $250 value for a family of four. That’s on account of all the health screenings and other offerings—plus the vouchers every attendee receives for a Hartford Wolf Pack ice-hockey game.
The first 500 visitors to the festival enjoy an added benefit: free flu shots. (OK, maybe that’s not something you exactly “enjoy,” but we can all agree it’s an important precaution this time of year.)
The NBC Connecticut Health & Wellness Festival kicks off with a fun, all-aboard bout of exercise: the NBC Connecticut Family 5k. Heats begin at 8 AM and 9 AM, and taking part in these level laps is the perfect way to launch your health-and-wellness experience. You can register for the race (for a $15 entry fee) right here; do so sooner rather than later, as the heats tend to fill up quickly.
Besides the health screenings, the expo will feature a slew of family-friendly activities and many informative and interactive exhibits. The American Red Cross will also be running a mobile blood drive throughout the day.
From donating blood and arming yourself against the flu to hands-on activities and the 5k run, the 2017 NBC Connecticut Health & Wellness Festival is a warm, welcoming, and utterly engaging way for individuals and families alike to learn ways to take better care of themselves. Oh, and don’t forget those hockey tickets, either!
