The 23rd annual Back to School Jam, which organizers hope will place 1,000 backpacks filled with school supplies into the hands of elementary, middle and high school students, will take place Aug. 2, 4-8 p.m., at Ingalls Harbor.

The celebration organized by Decatur Youth Services and the Decatur Housing Authority also will include free food, games, water slides, bounce houses, entertainment, a dunking booth and more.
