Another tremendous turn-out for Showcase Ozark Business & Community Expo, held this Saturday, April 6 at The OC. The new Star Stage was a nice addition to the event which included fashion show and “booty makeovers” by Vault Denim, Cooking Fast & Healthy by Salad Master, and a Zumba Demonstration.

Kids and adults were lined up to see the Hands-On Reptile Exhibit, and many community members took advantage of the free document shredding by Shred-It! It is always great to see so many businesses connect with new customers at Showcase Ozark!
