Increasingly walkable, health-minded and locally inclined, downtown West Palm Beach seems an ideal stage for an outdoor fest that celebrates clean living.

This is what the third annual “Fresh Fest” aims to be: a day-long celebration of fitness and healthy eats.  The festival packs no fewer than 14 fitness classes into five-plus hours, kicking off with paddleboard yoga on water and winding down with dance cardio. In between, there are cycle, hip hop, barre, boxing, and kiddie workouts.

Add to that health food demos, workshops, acai bowls, smoothies, art and music. More than 60 vendors are expected to display health-centric goods. To drive the message home, the fest has booked speaker Stephanie Mansour, a health and fitness expert who has appeared on Dr. Oz, CNN and other outlets. She’s scheduled to speak at noon.

Bonus: The fest coincides with the weekly West Palm Beach GreenMarket, which takes place one block over from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
