The trade show includes representatives from various stores and organizations such as BBBS, the Abbotsford Youth Commission and GirlKind.

There will also be a photo booth, mini makeovers, games, prizes, and entertainment by Splitz Gymnastics, Triumph Acrobatics, Legacy Dance, Valley Stars, Dynamic Dance and more.

The Art on Sneakers Battle runs from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Participants under the age of 18 will create designs on sneakers provided for the competition, followed by the selection of the top 10 designs.

The 10 finalists will be displayed until 2:30 p.m. and voted on by the public. The winner of the public vote receives a $100 gift card and is then featured on the BeYou website, where a national public vote takes place.
