Weekend for Women Preview

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Ladies, there's an event just for you starting Friday. Vendors are setting up for Yellowstone Valley Weekend for Women.

Organizers say this year there are more than 100 vendors at MetraPark's Expo center. The event features a trade show, Run Like A Girl 5K, LOL! A Night of Comedy, and cooking classes. Event organizers say this event has grown partly because there is a need for it in the community.

"I love Billings," said Haley Vannatta, the event producer. "We feel very connected to the community, and I think it's just important for women to be able to have fun, to get out together to do something good for them and learn about different things."

The trade show starts Friday at noon and goes until 6 PM Saturday. The events do require tickets and they can be purchased at the door.

Proceeds from the 5-K will go to St. Vincent Healthcare's EVA project, which provides mammograms to women in need.
