Fitness 19 is the digital edition/slideshow sponsor for the 2017 Back to School Expo.

Columbus Parent and ThisWeek Community News held the second Back to School Expo from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 5 along Fenlon Street at Easton. 

More than two dozen exhibitors offered information about topics such as education, entertainment, extracurricular activities, healthy living and sports. Attendees also participated in games and activities in the family fun zone as well as onstage performances, demonstrations and contests.

The expo coincided with Ohio’s sales tax holiday, which applied to certain back-to-school clothing and supplies purchased Aug. 4-6.
