Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) – Charleston's annual First Day Festival will take place on Sunday, August 19 from 1-4 p.m. at Liberty Square near the SC Aquarium and Charleston Maritime Center.

The entire community is invited to celebrate education and to mark the beginning of the school year.

Attendees will find education exhibitors, health and wellness stations and nutritious snacks.

In addition, a key component of the First Day Festival is backpack distribution. Organizers packed more than 6,000 backpacks filled with school supplies for local children who could otherwise begin the school year without the necessary, needed supplies.
