The third annual Community Business Expo is underway at MVCC's Jorgensen Center.

119 area businesses are taking part in the expo, which is free and open to the community.

Executive Director Megan Fraser-McGrogan says the expo is a great way for locals to see what Utica's business community has to offer.

"You might know the name of the company, but you don't know what they manufacture or where it goes and where it ends up," Fraser-McGrogan said. "So this event really was created to welcome the entire community in so they can get a feel for what our businesses do in the area."

The Community Business Expo is open until 7:00 tonight (Thursday Sep. 22).
