North Philly students can celebrate the opening of school with music, school supply giveaways and healthy food at a block party Saturday.
The Back2School Block Party at Panati Playground, 3100 N 22nd Street, will run from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and feature a live DJ, games and giveaways of school supplies and PPE.
Organizers said the goal was to provide some fun for students who have just started the school year -- and to ensure they had the tools they need to succeed.
The event is presented by Western Warriors.
