Thousands of women from all over the region are treating themselves and loved ones at the Bayfront Convention Center this weekend.
They’re shopping until they drop and pampering their loved ones for the annual For Women Only Expo.
Whitney White says, “We do it just for a weekend away even though it’s still in town, you know what i mean. You got your mom, your grandma, your friends, your girlfriends, your daughter and it’s just a place to go to shop, there’s pampering in there. There’s manicures, massages, facials. It’s a good weekend away but it’s still local.”
New this year to the for women only expo is Escape Game Erie, where you have to crack the code, solve the puzzle and escape the room.
Jennifer Wedzik says, “We have a mini- 20 minute escape. It’s created especially for the event. It’s our Da Vinci room escape. So it’s a whole Da Vinci theme.”
Wedzik says they are participating in this year’s expo to give moms, sisters, daughters and all women a chance to put their thinking skills to the test and escape Da Vinci’s secret.
Wedzik says, “Escape Game Erie offers a form of entertainment for friends, families, co-workers, something that people can do together as a group. It allows you to work together, to appreciate the people that you’re with and have fun at the same time.”
The expo continues again Sunday from 11 to 4.
