With school about two weeks away for local students, many families flocked to the back-to-school bashes in the area for basic school supplies.

Children attended back-to-school bashes on Saturday at the 13th annual Jim Wells County and the Mauro Garcia Funeral Home's Back-to-School Bashes.

Families also partook in the Housing Authority Back-to-School Bash on Monday.

There was food, music and games for the kids to enjoy. Families took home backpacks, paper, pens and pencils that would help with their education.
