The annual "CELEBRATING FAMILIES:  A BACK TO SCHOOL FAIR" will be held on Saturday.  The FREE event for families runs from 9:30am-1pm at the Washington Pavilion in Sioux Falls.

Celebrating Families offers a free venue for local families to get their children's school year off to the right start by helping them get prepared for their first day of school.

The event will include FREE vision screenings, early childhood screenings, back-to-school information, safety demonstrations, dental tips, and much, much more!

The biggest hit of the event is the free kid's new sock and underwear giveaway.  Children must be present with parent or guardian for the giveaway.  All items are donated by many community individuals, groups, organizations and businesses.

There is also a FREE lunch starting at 11am until gone!
