A festival with Pauls Valley and Whitebead kids at the center is now just a couple of weeks away.

It's called Love PV, which for the second year has local volunteers working to raise enough money to ensure each PV and Whitebead student has school supplies waiting for them when the first day of the next school year arrives in August.

A community festival for the Love PV drive is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 29 in Wacker Park.

The event with free admission will feature kid-friendly booths, local bands and singers taking to the outdoor stage, bouncy houses, a water game zone, food trucks and retail booths.
