SUN CITY CENTER — The Fall Business Expo returns to Sun City Center on Thursday, celebrating a 30-year tradition of welcoming back residents who spent the summer up North.

Hosted by the Sun City Center Area Chamber of Commerce, the expo is held twice a year, in the fall and the spring to give businesses, nonprofits and entrepreneurs, who are members of the chamber, an opportunity to showcase their products and services to consumers and generate leads.

The expo will take place at the City Center Community Hall, 19105 S Pebble Beach Blvd., from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission and parking are free.

Chamber executive director Dana Dittmar anticipates a large turnout similar to last year when more than 1,500 people attended from Sun City Center and the surrounding communities. Visitors will be welcomed with free tote bags, door prizes and raffles. Exhibitors will have booths where they'll be available to answer questions, hand out information, display their products and give free gifts.

Food and beverages will be provided by several Sun City Center churches and service organizations.

Hillsborough County Tax Collector Doug Belden, and U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland, will both be present to answer questions.

The expo will feature an added benefit this year: free medical screenings for skin cancer, blood pressure, diabetes and bone density testing conducted by several local health care providers.

For more information, contact DeeLores Everette of the Sun City Center Area Chamber of Commerce at (813) 634-5111.
