Back to School Family Fun Day

The Shippensburg Area Chamber of Commerce will host a free Back to School Family Fun Day from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13, at the Shippensburg Fairgrounds on Possum Hollow Road.

The Shippensburg Area Chamber of Commerce will hold its annual Back to School Family Fun Day from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13, at the Shippensburg Fairgrounds on Possum Hollow Road.

“This annual community event is a fun and free way for families to gain valuable information on programs and resources available in our area that are designed for children and youth of all ages and their families,” Wendy Forrester, office manager of the Chamber, said. “The day features more than 35 representatives from various organizations, businesses and first responders. There will be an inflatable from Strouse Entertainment, fire and police apparatus on display, free school supplies (while supplies last), free refreshments, interactive activities for kids and free kids’ haircuts.”

This annual community event hosted by the Shippensburg Area Chamber of Commerce has been held since approximately 2011, and is a way for children to enjoy some fun as the school year begins.

Many thanks to our sponsors, UPMC and Volvo Construction Equipment, for partnering with us. The chamber would also like to thank many local organizations, businesses and individuals who made donations to the event! A special thank you to the Shippensburg Fair Board for the use of the Shippensburg Fairgrounds for the event.

The event will be held rain or shine, so bring the kids and have a day of fun!
