Boscov’s White Marsh hosting back to school fair on August 26
In less than two weeks, Baltimore County Public Schools will celebrate the upcoming school year with its biggest and best back to school festival ever. The festival will be held on Saturday, Aug. 26, from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., on the lower parking lot at Boscov’s White Marsh Mall.
Here are the top 10 reasons you will want to join us at the free festival.
10. Every 15 minutes, BCPS will raffle off backpacks filled with school supplies, donated by Patient First. Are you feeling lucky?
9. Getting up close and personal with fire engines is always fun. The White Marsh Volunteer Fire Company is bringing an engine. Compare it to the 1949 Mack Engine the Fire Museum of Maryland is bringing to the festival.
8. Doc the Tiger from Towson University wants to take a selfie with you.
7. It’s time to “Get Your Head in the Game” for the new school year. Staff from the BCPS Office of Visual Arts will show you how to make a creative, fanciful paper hat sculpture, and staff from the BCPS Office of Science will help you make cool paper rockets.
6. Students need our support to achieve academic success. Learn more on the BCPS Parentmobile, a mobile parent resource center, and at information tables representing BCPS and community programs and services.
5. Active bodies support active minds. Enjoy playing with hula hoops and jump ropes provided by the BCPS Office of Physical Education.
4. You’re going to be hungry. Buy a delicious lunch from Flat Chance, Jimmy’s Famous Seafood, Maui Wowi Hawaiian Smoothies, or Pablo’s Toc O’s food trucks.
3. Reading is a great way to prepare for school. Find great books on the Baltimore County Public Library’s Bookmobile.
2. If you haven’t heard the psychedelic funk band The Groove Machine, you need to hear them. The band is comprised of seven talented Grade 10 students from George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology.
1. It’s sleek, black, and shiny and filled with exciting technology. Come to explore the new BCPS Mobile Innovation Lab.
