Telecommunications company Flow will stage its second back-to-school fair on Sunday, August 24, 2014 at the Old Hospital Park in Montego Bay.

Similar to last year's event, the telecoms company will again be teaming up with Discovery Channel to host the patrons who will benefit from school supplies and giveaways, as well as services from exhibitors who have been invited to participate.

In addition to the discounts and items that will be distributed this year, there will be a health and wellness zone, offering free haircuts and health checks for children.

Additionally, children will be engaged with fun rides, such as a 5D Simulators, and activities such as a trampoline, photo boothe, game stations, and an electronic gaming lounge.

Entry to the event remains free of cost and tickets are available at the Flow Montego Bay retail store. The event starts at noon and ends at 5 p.m.

Flow's Sponsorship Manager Nicole Campbell said. "We are taking things up a notch, and this year we are going for the wow factor. Flow is a family brand and so outside of providing an event which is a one-stop shop for all back-to-school needs, we want to ensure that we provide an avenue for families to come out and enjoy some quality, fun entertainment."

In an effort to continuously promote and drive the importance of education to Flow customers, we have increased the back-to-school grants to $50,000. Two lucky patrons will have the opportunity to win these grants by simply completing the back of their tickets and dropping it in a raffle drum at the fair," Campbell added.
