North Coventry >> More than 80 people came out to a glow-light Zumba party at Coventry Mall decked out in neon-colored workout gear and glow stick necklaces.
The hour-long dance fitness activity was held inside the former Ross Store at the mall Aug. 5. The lights were turned off so participants could shine with glow-light wearables.
Fit for Life and the Pottstown YMCA hosted the free public event as the last activity of their summer fitness series. Since June, the two organizations have come together to provide the community with free healthy events this summer. Previous events included Zumba in the park, a kids obstacle course and a morning tai chi class.
