Freebies and seminars were all a part of the Salvation Army Health Fair on Saturday.

The Health Fair, located at the Airline Highway Salvation Army location took place Saturday afternoon.

Some of the participating businesses included EBR Mobile Library, Metro Health HIV Testing, EBR Fire Department, Just Kids Dental, and Our Lady of the Lake Blood Mobile.

Parents and kids could learn more about various ways to keep their bodies in the best shape. From healthy eating, to hurricane preparation, several agencies teamed up to send a message of safety.

"The children are out of school and there's not a lot to do, and this is just a good place," said a woman at the fair. "They can come by and get refreshments and a lot of education."

The Louisiana Attorney General's office and the Baton Rouge Fire Department performed a demonstration on fire safety. Our Lady of the Lake Hospital along with the East Baton Rouge Mobile Library were also at Saturday's event.
