A diverse assortment of businesses lined Main Street in Newhall Saturday for the annual Home & Business Expo, put on by the Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce.

This was the 29th year the chamber has held the expo, and the second year the event has been on Main Street in Newhall, according to Cheryl Ramirez, the director of member services for the Chamber of Commerce.

“The purpose of the event is to help our chamber members spotlight their businesses,” she said Saturday afternoon.

“They set up a booth, they promote themselves and it gives them a good connection with the community so people can find out what they’re all about.”

This year’s event also doubled as a kind of street fair with additional family oriented activities, including a collection of carnival rides and games.

“There’s been a fabulous turnout,” Ramirez said.

Vendors and crowds wandering the streets of Newhall also helps bring exposure to the local businesses in the area, Ramirez said.

“This absolutely helps the people from Valencia and Saugus and Canyon Country if they haven’t been here recently to come down and see some of the fabulous stores that are here,” Ramirez said. “There’s a lot of new stores and they get the chance to come down here and check them all out.”

One such local business owner was Carlos Marroquin, who owns Planet Soccer on Main Street.

Marroquin said he hopes the event will help people become more aware of businesses in Newhall, including his.

“It’s good for everybody in town,” he said. “I support the Chamber of Commerce, I support my city, and I think things like these are great.”
