PORT HARDY—The inaugural North Island Wellness Fair was a hit last weekend, drawing hundreds of visitors to Port Hardy’s Civic Centre Saturday.

Eighteen different vendors showcased the surprising variety of alternative and traditional healing products and services available on the North Island — everything from yoga to supplements and massage to tarot readings.

Organizer Kellie Dukes was thrilled with the response and said she planned to host another event in the spring. If that event proves as popular as last weekend’s then she plans to offer the event annually.
