Once again, two communities gathered as one for a celebration at the West Blocton Town Park and Walking Track. Families of students who attend Woodstock and West Blocton schools kicked off back-to-school week with a Back to School Bash, featuring food trucks, water slides, and lots of fun.
“We think this is a good way to get the younger kids excited about going to school,” said West Blocton mayor Daniel Sims. “All the families come out, the older kids – football players, cheerleaders, and all – are here performing and talking to the younger kids. Everybody has fun, too. These new water-slides are huge, and I think ever kid coming in has made a beeline straight to them! It’s just a good time for everybody, and a good way to kick off the school year and sort of have a end of summer party.”
In addition to event sponsor Taco Magic, several vendors showed up to serve food and frozen treats. No one seemed disappointed with the food options. The inflatable water slides were indeed impressive, and children enjoyed the newly repaired and repainted merry-go-round.
