For some parents with kids out of school during this summer, the break felt like an eternity, but for most, it went as fast as it came. The back to school shopping has either been completed, or is nearly done, and our little ones will be headed back to school very soon.

Back to school isn't just an anxious time for parents. We can't forget the kids, who are headed into new experiences. To help with the transition and make this time of year a bit happier for local students, the United with Christ Church of Johnson City will host a free Back to School Bash, open to everyone the Southern Tier.

The Back to School Bash will be held next Wednesday, August 30th starting at 6:30pm at the church, located at 1025 Robinson Hill Road in Johnson City.

At the United with Christ Church Back to School Bash, you'll find an obstacle course, scavenger hunt, photo booth, and more. Also included for free will be food and raffles for prizes such as Rumble Ponies and Binghamton Devils tickets.

Before you go, be sure to check out all of the fun things that are planned!
