Several Charleston area organizations chipped to facilitate the transition from summer vacations to fall examinations for students August 22-23 for the KidSTYLE Fashion Camp and Food Truck Festival at Tanger Outlets North Charleston.

Chaperoned by Tanger General Manager Penny Benton, the weekend session was complimented with a photo booth, dance performance, safety demonstrations, and all the free water that was completely necessary as temperatures nearly reached triple digits each day.

School supplies were donated by attendees and Paul Mitchell The School Charleston, who graciously provided items such as notebooks, paper, and pens. The high-end salon and institution partnered with the Broken Hearted Foundation to help the children have some fun while getting them ready for the 2014-2015 term.

The event flooded the shopping center with a diverse crowd who fought the heat to experience a festive Saturday for a good cause. There was something for everyone: balloon animals, sidewalk chalk art, live music, free manicures from Paul Mitchell, coupons to Tanger stores, and fare from Kona Ice and Charleston Festival Foods.

The SC Aquarium teamed up with CARTA to promote the NASH shuttle service, which travels throughout the Charleston Metropolitan Area, and make available an on-site air conditioned bus that allowed to participants to take a breather away from the sun. Both the North Charleston Police and Fire Departments were on hand to conduct safety drills and activities.

Shonnie Sanders of the Shonnie Stahyling Firm orchestrated an ambrosial kid’s fashion show Saturday afternoon based on her own styles. C3 Cheer & Dance and the C.E. Williams Middle School Dance Team both displayed their deft talents for appreciative crowds.

The back-to-school weekend fair at Tanger was a worthy extension for both parents and students to get used to the year ahead with cheers, treats, and eats.
