This is the last weekend to sign up for health insurance through Covered California.

On Saturday, thousands of people lined up at the Fresno Fairgrounds to get help enrolling. Dozens of certified counselors were there to help individuals and families sign up for low-cost or no-cost health insurance plans.

The California Endowment hosted this We Connect event. It also offered basic medical and dental screenings, plus a healthy food giveaway and free bike repair.

Monday, March 31, is the end of open enrollment as part of the Affordable Care Act.
