Back to School Festival

Basin PBS has scheduled a Back to School Festival starting at 5 p.m. Saturday at Centennial Park, 200 W. Wall St., Midland.

Basin PBS teamed up with Centennial Park to host more than 30 local nonprofit organizations who serve families and children.

Organizations will be set up around the park offering information about their services and giving away goodies while supplies last.

The event will also include live entertainment, face painting, food trucks, movie in the park featuring “Monsters University,” and more, plus a visit from a PBS KIDS favorite, Super WHY!

The first 400 kids to arrive will receive a free backpack from ATMOS Energy.

For the movie in the park, bring a blanket or lawn chair.
