It will continue from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

Services include physical and dental exams, women’s health and breast exams, cervical cancer screenings, testing for sexually transmitted diseases, mental health sessions, diabetes and cholesterol screenings, vision and hearing tests and immunizations, among others.

Free car seats and bike helmets also will be given away while they last, and free childcare will be provided.

No proof of insurance is needed to receive care. The clinic is open to the public and appointments are not required.

The fair served 3,178 clients in 2013. About 84 percent of the fair’s participants were uninsured and 88 percent earned less than $30,000.
