It’s still summer break, but Annandale High School was filled with children Aug. 13 for the second annual Back-to-School Annandale Pyramid Resource Fair. According to organizers, at least 4,000 people came.

It all took place in a lively setting with musical performance by Annandale High School students, a DJ, face painting, balloons, and popcorn.
All students and their parents in the Annandale High School pyramid (which includes eight elementary and two middle schools) were invited, and people started lining up well before the doors opened at 2 p.m.

The event, organized by Fairfax County Public Schools and the Annandale High School pyramid with support from the Fairfax County Department of Neighborhood and Community Services and lots of help from volunteers and a long list of sponsors, was aimed at making sure students are ready for the start of the school year.
