This upcoming weekend will be the last weekend of the Summer. The Acadiana Mall wants you and your family to not sit idly by, but instead come on out and have some fun at the 2nd Annual "Back To School Bash".

Macaroni Kid will be hosting the event inside the Acadiana Mall during the annual "Red, White, & You" event this Saturday, 8/4 from 11 a.m .until 3 p.m.

KATC reports "There will be face painting, games, numerous characters walking the floors for pictures, a live DJ, dancing, car seat checks, and door prizes. Families will learn about after-school activities, tutoring services, and local non-profits."

The "Back To School Bash" will happen throughout the Acadiana Mall in the Main Entrance, Dillard's Wing, Central Court, and Food Court areas.
