DALLAS (1080 KRLD)- In Dallas, the Mayor's Back to School Fair kicks off tonight.

It's the 24 annual Back to School Fair in Dallas and it will be very different this year. It's a 2 day event and it starts tonight at Fair Park for parents and students without cars.

Parents who qualified and pre-registered can walk up at Fair Park between 5 and 7 tonight and pick up the school supplies they need.

School district leaders say the fair is a huge help, especially this year, for parents who can't afford school supplies.

And while not all the services that are usually offered will be available this year, students will get the supplies they need to help them succeed.

Friday, parents with cars can drive thru and pick up supplies. The drive thru will be open from 9 in the morning until 2 in the afternoon.

The first day of school for students in the Dallas ISD is September 8th.
