There is still time to Pack The Bus for the 2021 Back 2 School Festival. The Back 2 School Festival is still collecting supplies.

You can bring your donations to the school buses parked at First National Bank on Blowing Rock Rd. and Peak Insurance at New Market Center now through July 30.

Donations may be left on the buses during regular business hours.

The Back 2 School Festival will be held in-person on August 6 and 7 this year at Watauga High School.

Organizers are also actively seeking sponsors and volunteers to help fund and staff the two-day even.
