BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Thousands of people filled Rabobank Arena Saturday to learn more about health and fitness options around Bakersfield.
It was the fifth annual Healthy Bakersfield Expo and it brought together industry leaders and companies to provide Kern County residents with information on the ever-changing health and fitness industry.
