Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs will host a free back-to-school event from 3-6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 5, at Jacob Building at Chilhowee Park, 3301 E. Magnolia Ave.
Previous mayors have hosted similar events. Jacobs named his “School Mania.” It’s an opportunity for students to get free school supplies, have a Shoney’s KidCare ID made, and enjoy activities, special programs, vendors and more. The event is free and open to Knox County citizens.
School Mania is sponsored by the Knoxville Enforcement Credit Union, Star 102.1, BlueCare Tennessee, Shoney’s, the city of Knoxville and Chilhowee Park & Exposition Center.
