Kevin Liles’ For A Better Baltimore Foundation is sponsoring a Back to School Festival, noon to 4 p.m., at Security Square Mall in Baltimore County with the hopes of helping children focus on preparing for a new school year.

The event, co-hosted by BCPS Superintendent Dr. Dallas Dance and Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz will feature educational games, free backpacks and school supplies, as well as live entertainment and free immunizations. This third annual Back to School Festival is an opportunity for school children of all ages to celebrate and prepare for the arrival of the new school year, which begins Aug. 27.

The traditionally well-attended festival is open to all county students and will include a variety of community resources and children’s activities, as well as several surprise celebrity guests.
