Waco ISD is offering free school supplies to registered students during its 6th Annual Back to School Family Fest on Saturday.

The free event is from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. It's being held at Waco High School and University High School.

Parents will be given the opportunity to register their child for the 2017-2018 school year at Family Fest if they haven't done so already.

"Family Fest is just a great way to do that last push for registration and to avoid the lines on that first day of school ... go ahead and get them registered so we have them in our system and they're ready to go," Waco ISD Education Foundation Specialist Lara Robertson said.
