July 27 will mark the fifth Back to School BASH for Noblesville Schools.

Each year before the first day of school, the district partners with local organizations to present a community event, particularly for Noblesville Schools students and their families.

This year, the district is partnering with Noblesville Parks and Recreation to move the Back to School BASH to Federal Hill Commons, 175 Logan St., Noblesville. In the past, the event has been held around the downtown courthouse square.

From 5 to 7:30 p.m., attendees can enjoy games, food, art, local vendors and more.

“This event is a celebration for Noblesville Schools students returning to school after summer break, but it also highlights the special connection between the district and the Noblesville community,” said Marnie Cooke, director of marketing and communications for Noblesville Schools. “We invite all community members to join in the fun and learn more about Noblesville Schools.”

“We’re pleased to partner with Noblesville Schools on this celebration and believe that it will become another exciting offering at Federal Hill Commons,” said Mike Hoffmeister, assistant director for Noblesville Parks. “The BASH also will be followed that evening by a Shakespeare in the Park performance at Federal Hill, so we encourage families to stay for a great theater production and for Shakespeare fans to come early and take part in BASH activities.”

Typically, the event draws approximately 5,000 guests.
