Noblesville Schools will host its annual Back to School Bash on the downtown Noblesville square from 5 to 8 p.m. July 28.
The fourth year for the event, the district, along with Noblesville Main Street, is expecting more than 5,000 people and approximately 50 different booths that will showcase local businesses and organizations, including Riverview Health, Hamilton East Public Library, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville, to name a few.
Guests of the event who swing by the Noblesville Schools booth can enter a raffle with a chance to win prizes like a free athletic pass or lunch with Supt. Beth Niedermeyer. Staff at the booth also will be distributing free Noblesville Schools reusable bags and vehicle decals, while supplies last.
Those who visit Noblesville Main Street’s booth can purchase tickets for the annual Duck Race event at the White River Celebration and Noblesville “Townie” T-shirts.
All 10 schools will be represented at the bash. Visitors can experience dunk tank with elementary school principals, a video game area, athletic areas (soccer, football, basketball, cheerleading and dance), face painting, a photo booth, student jazz performances, a student art gallery, sidewalk chalk art, games, food vendors and more. The Noblesville High School Marching Millers also will perform after the bash at Hare Chevrolet Field.
This year, the Back to School Bash is the same night as elementary school ice cream socials, which run from 4 to 6 p.m.
