School is right around the corner! Great news for parents and hopefully exciting news for the kiddos. In an effort to get students pepped up for the upcoming academic year, Great River Federal Credit Union is hosting a free back to school event!

St. Cloud Back to School Bash kicks off on Thursday, August 19 at 4 p.m. and goes until 6 p.m. at the Great River Federal Credit Union in St. Cloud.

Students will be able to burn some energy in the bouncy house from Granite City Jump, participate in summer craft making, checkout big rigs like fire trucks and so much more!

They'll be handing out free ice cream treats and giving away door prizes. Marvin the Moose will also make an appearance during the event to greet kids and families.

You're encouraged to bring a school supply or monetary donation to help your local school district. According to the St. Cloud Back To School Bash official Facebook event page, "donations aren't required, but are strongly encouraged."

The event is free to attend and open to everyone whether they're a current student or not.

Who is ready for school to start up again? Woot woo! Let's ring in the school year with a little last-minute fun!

The credit union is located at 1532 West Saint Germain Street in St. Cloud.
