HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Hundreds of people visted the Lake Terrace Convention Center Saturday to learn more about women's health, fashion, home décor and cooking. It was all part of the 2nd annual Pine Belt Women's Expo.

More than 50 vendors were on hand to share information on various health issues, local charities, restaurants and travel.

Several seminiars were also offered.

"I think it's wonderful," said Leoma Wuollet of Hattiesburg. "I think that the ideas and the things that they have to offer are one of the things that I think women need to be informed about," she said.

"It's great," said Wendy Radtke, a vendor from Hattiesburg. "I didn't think there would be so many vendors here. Everybody is having a good time and winning lots of prizes," she said.

This was the first year for the event at the Lake Terrace Convention Center.
