The annual EDGEfest Back to School Party is planned for Saturday, August 7, 2021 at Whistle Stop Park (651 Roberts Road, Edgewater). This event will be drive through with vehicles entering the park from 28th Street and exiting on to 30th Street/Roberts Road. While waiting in line, attendees can tune in to 97.1 FM to listen to fun music and event announcements. Staff and volunteers will be on hand to pass out backpacks to families as they remain in their vehicles. As cars make their way through the park they will be able to pick up various school supplies at booths staffed by local businesses, civic groups and churches.
The event will begin at 9:00 AM. This is the most important event of our EdgeFest event series as we strive to give away 500+ backpacks and school supplies to our local students. Backpacks are given away on a first come, first served basis.
It takes the support of our entire community to ensure our local students get back to school on the right foot. If your business, civic group, club, church or family is interested in getting involved or for more information, please call 424-2400 x1340 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
