KIMBERLY—The Kimberly City Council last Monday discussed details surrounding the Back to School Bash event which is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 7 at North Jefferson Middle School.
According to councilmember Robert Mashburn, the evening is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. and will conclude at 9 p.m. following several activities, which include a car show, obstacle courses, bouncy houses, face-painting booths, a movie showing and more.
Multiple food trucks are expected: Porky’s Pride, Two Fat Men, Señor Taco and Pandy’s. Groovy Grub will also have a booth available with desert options.
“We just want to do something nice and get the community together, get the kids together and incorporate the fire and police [departments],” said Mashburn when he announced the event in July.
The Back to School Bash is sponsored by Coca-Cola, Jefferson County Schools, Jefferson County Commission, Regional Air Medical Services (RAMS), 10-41 Strength & Conditioning, Home Life, Bain & Associates, and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.
North Jefferson Middle School is located at 8350 Warrior Kimberly Rd.
