Free is one of the best words in the English language, especially when it comes to back to school.  If you are needing help with school supplies, stop by Kidsfest 2016 for free supplies.

Back to school time is always a strain on the wallet, especially if you have more than one kid.  Well each year the Amarillo Civic Center has held KidsFest to help out with school supplies and vaccinations.

This year Kidsfest will be held at the Amarillo Civic Center North, South Exhibit Halls and the Regency Room.  They will be offering tons of different things.  Not only will there be games, snacks, and entertainment for the kids, but they will be giving out free backpacks, paper, pencils and a whole lot more.  There will also be a quiet story time to a loud and rambunctious drumline presentation

The City of Amarillo Health Department will provide low-cost immunizations to ensure young students will be able to attend class, and free dental screenings as well.  Just make sure to bring your kids immunization records.

This is a great event for families of all sizes.  Just a little way to help ease the stress of back to school shopping.  The event happens Saturday, August 6th and begins at 8 am and will last until noon, so get there early.

There will also be tons of information on what the City of Amarillo has to offer.
