Thousands flocked to Citizens Bank Stadium for the annual Elizabethton City Schools 2022 Back 2 School Bash.
The event, organized by Elizabethton City Schools, East River Park Christian Church, Elizabethton Police Department, Carter County Health Department, and United Way of Elizabethton/Carter County, took place from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday.
The Back 2 School Bash featured 1,000 free backpacks full of school supplies, as well as inflatables, obstacle courses, lunch, giveaway items, health and education resources and back-to-school information direct from principals and teachers.
Community sponsors make this event possible each year by donating more than $20,000 for the purchase of backpacks full of school supplies and inflatable rental. Backpacks are filled with school supplies from a school supplier and average about $20 each.
The free event was open to families in Elizabethton, Carter County, and the surrounding areas.
