Fun 4 Gator Kids Back to School Bash

TBD (early August 2020) | Celebration Pointe

Come out to Celebration Pointe for a day of fun in the sun as we say so long to summer and hello to the coming school year. Celebration Pointe and Fun 4 Gator Kids are partnering up to bring in the school year in style! It’s that time of summer when the boredom has really set in and few kids are even looking forward to going back to school. Another year of learning new things, making friends, and growing older– that’s something worth celebrating! This is also a great opportunity to learn about some of the fun after-school programs offered in Gainesville throughout the year. Vendors are encouraged to provide FREE activities and to run raffles for a free week of camp at their booths.
