To celebrate the blissful freedom that returns at summer’s end when you finally get the kids out of your hair… er, we mean…that super-sad moment when we tear ourselves apart from the little ones and send them back to school, the City of Austin is hosting the Back to School Bash! On Saturday, August 24 at the Austin Convention Center from 9 am – noon, you can get all the info you could ever want about AISD programs and community services, free immunizations (yay, shots!), free backpacks and school supplies (while they last) and even door prizes!

There will be free shuttle buses every 30 minutes starting at 8 am leaving from the following locations:

One Texas Center – 505 Barton Springs Rd.
Blazier Elementary8601 Vertex Blvd.
