The 19th annual Marshall County Back-to-School Fun Fair will be held on Wednesday, July 24, 2019 at the former West Virginia State Penitentiary in Moundsville from 8:00 a.m. until noon.
The “Fun Fair” is open to any Marshall County Schools student, Pre-K through 12th grade, who is accompanied by an adult. Each child will receive free school supplies such as a backpack, pencils, pens, notebooks and more.
Other free services will be offered during the “Fun Fair.” The Marshall County Health Department will provide check-ups and hairstylists will be giving haircuts. Nearly 50 different agencies will be on hand to assist students and parents. Pizza will be served for lunch.
Marshall County Schools employee Susie Baker started the “Fun Fair” in 2000 and since then has become a popular way for Marshall County students to celebrate their return to school. Last year more than 1,300 families took part in the event. There are no income guidelines to participate in the “Fun Fair.”
