The 10th annual First Day Festival is coming to entertain and prepare kids for their first day of school on Sunday, August 19, from 1 to 4 p.m.

Every August by attending the festival thousands of students get prepared for the education year and receive school supplies for the new school year. There will also beĀ education exhibits, snacks, face painting, boat rides, and other fun activities for kids.

The event is at Liberty Square at the S.C. Aquarium and the Charleston Maritime Center.

The festival is free, but you can bring a nonperishable food item to donate to the Lowcountry Food Bank.
