One of Ringgold's most popular eateries will host its first-ever "Back to School Bash" Saturday afternoon, Aug. 12, as a way of getting Catoosa County students back in the school spirit.

Legendairy Ice Cream and Coffee Shop, best known for its cool treats, sandwiches, and latt├ęs, is partnering with J-103 Christian radio station for the event, which will include deals, game, live music, and numerous giveaways.

"We're really excited about it," said Legendairy owner Jake Wade. "J-103 has been great, and they usually have a lot of people that attend their remote shows, so we're expecting around 1,000 people tomorrow. J-103 will be Facebook live-ing it also, so that's going to be pretty cool. It'll be the first time they've done Facebook live at a remote."

Wade also says the J-103 DJ hosting the event will take the Legendairy challenge of trying to eat the Legendairy Split ice cream concoction.

"It's just going to be a fun event," Wade said. "We'll have music, food, ice cream, our normal menu, and a lot of stuff for giveaways. We'll have a $50 Legendairy gift card, a family four pack to Lake Winnie, and Stare at the Son, a Christian band, will be playing live during the whole thing. We'll also have corn hole games setup, a kettle corn vendor, and a prize wheel from local businesses."

The event will also work as a tool to help equip Catoosa County Schools with supplies for students.

Wade says patrons will be given a discount on their purchase if they bring some sort of school supply with them. Those supplies will become part of an overall collection that'll be distributed after the event.

"Bring a school supply, and get ten percent off," Wade said. "After were done with the event, we'll take all the supplies we get and deliver them to a Catoosa County school."

The event will take place between 2-5 p.m. and is free for the entire family.
