Greensboro, NC -- Thousands of people came together Saturday afternoon to get kids excited and ready for the upcoming school year.
Vessels of Mercy Outreach Ministries sponsored the Community Celebration and Picnic at Douglas Park. It was full of food and fun for the whole family.
Kids could jump on inflatables, get their faces painted, learn about safety vehicles and listen to music from several artists.
Community members even got a special treat with an appearance by the A&T drumline.
The event was a community effort, and organizers hope it helps nurture the kids' success in the upcoming school year.
