Host the event at your home, a neighborhood clubhouse, or check out Kidding Around Spartanburg’s list of Kid’s Eat Free hot spots and go out for a night on the town. Invite your school Principal or Assistant Principal. You never know, they may be so excited to swing by and have an informal “meet and greet!”
