The 15th Annual Back to School Fair presented by Hillsborough County Public Schools will gather the best Tampa Bay has to offer to make the upcoming school year the best one yet! … and yes, it’s FREE! Join us from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, July 30!
This awesome back to school bash takes place inside the AIR CONDITIONED comfort of WestShore Plaza shopping mall on Sales Tax Holiday Saturday! This means you won’t have to pay sales tax on your school related purchases! What a great time to get your school shopping done!
FREE backpacks are given to the fist 500 kids in the backpack line (Exact Location TBD - follow the signs in the mall) - the line for free backpacks usually starts to form around 9am, and there are just 500 backpacks to give out - so get there early and don't miss out!
Last year our back to school bash had some awesome entertainment and this year we are at it again! Bringing back the favorites and more.
- Meet and take pictures with ThunderBug from the Tampa Bay Lightning!
- Pose for pictures, listen to a story, and sing with the Princesses of Parties with Character!
