Back To School Blast
School children are getting a fresh attitude one cut at a time. Hundreds of kids in North Central Florida got a new look for the new school year. The Lions Club of High Springs held it's first annual Back to School Blast started by one of the members, and owner of All Creations Hair Salon, Kelly Deese.
President of the Lions Club, John Sullivan, says the event didn't start until 10am, but a line formed at 9:30am with anxious tots ready to stock up on school goodies.
Other than the backpacks and haircuts, free helmets were given out for safe riding, along with live music and food.
Deese says she got the idea from Alachua and decided they needed to have their own. Over 150 backpacks were given out and nearly 100 hair cuts. The city of high springs plans to make this an annual event.
