The mid-August event was christened the Back to School Health Fair Festival by organizers. Aimed at local schools and their students, plus others from the community, the event took place at the Path House. Run by Fifth Street Ministries, the Path House serves the homeless and others in need living in and around Statesville.

Festivities concluded with a parade at nearby Alex Cooper Park. The park is just south of the center of Statesville, close to both Fifth Street Ministries’ campus and the Path House. Attendees included local students, other members of the community, and a variety of businesses and further organizations, including Stepping Stone Medical and its team.

All invitees were welcomed to enjoy free food, music, face painting, and more. “Thank you to everyone who supported and attended our Back to School Health Fair Festival on Saturday,” said a representative for Fifth Street Ministries following the event.
