‘Back 2 School Bash’ returning to Paddock Mall

The Paddock Mall will be celebrating the upcoming school year with the return of its Back 2 School Bash.

The event will be held on Saturday, August 6, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the mall, which is located at 3100 SW College Road in Ocala.

During the event, the Paddock Mall team will be handing out up to 3,000 backpacks to the community. No registration is required, and the backpacks will be given away on a first-come, first-served basis.

Parents or guardians are encouraged to bring their child to the event to receive a free backpack. If any families request a backpack without their child being present, those families will each receive one backpack.

The mall is also partnering with local nonprofit organizations for a School Supply Drive, and donations are currently being accepted through August 6 in the mall’s Center Court.
