BAY, AR (KAIT) - The first day of school is just around the corner and Saturday, city officials in Bay kicked the year off with a celebration.
Parents, students, residents and city officials came out to the Bay city park around Noon for hot dogs, drinks, live music and much more.
This was also a way for officials to collect school supplies and monetary donations for the school district.
City officials say residents always support them and this is just on way to show their appreciation. "People always come out in groves and support us so its kind of a way for us, as police and fire department and also the city employees pitched in all business to give back to our school. Our school is always there to support us so we'd like to do the same for our school" says Paul Keith with the Bay police department.
This was the first year for the event.
