Marnie Cooke is so glad the Noblesville Schools Back to School BASH will return.
After a one-year absence because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Back to School BASH will return from 5 to 7:30 p.m. July 30 at Federal Hill Commons. The Noblesville Parks Dept. partners with the school on the event, which started in 2014.
“I’m especially excited about the BASH this year as it will be our first opportunity to all be together again as a school community after many months apart,” said Cooke, director of marketing and communications for the school district. “I think running into friends and school staff, visiting with community groups, and really just having a fun evening out will be even more special and appreciated this year. Some of our community booths like the Noblesville School Education Foundation and Noblesville Youth Assistance may be fundraising for their organizations, but overall, that’s not the purpose of the event. This event is a celebration for our students returning to school after summer break, but it also highlights the special connection between the district and the Noblesville community. We’re thankful for the community partners and local businesses that join us and for the Noblesville Parks Dept. as our co-host of the event.”
The event is free to the public and local businesses will sell food and drinks.
The Noblesville High School Marching Millers marching band will perform music and there will be a DJ throughout the event. There also will be games, interactive art, free giveaways and school staff in dunk tanks. The event typically draws approximately 8,000 people.
Community partners such as the City of Noblesville, the Boys and Girls Club of Noblesville, Nickel Plate Arts, Boy Scouts/Girl Scouts and the Hamilton East Public Library will be on-site. There will be booths representing all 10 Noblesville schools. Miller spirit wear will be on sale.
