2017 WGN-TV Back to School Kids Fair

Monday, August 14th, 2017

Each passing day in August brings us one day closer to that most bittersweet of late-summer events: the first day of school. For Chicago students, one of  the surest signs that the school year is around the corner is the WGN-TV Back-to-School Kids Fair. Every summer, WGN’s Fair gives Chicago families a little extra help in getting ready to go back to school. Local business are on hand to give out free treats and school supplies, medical professionals offer free health screenings, and Chicago entertainers like The Jesse White Tumblers are on hand for one last hurrah before the homework and early mornings start again. It’s one of our favorite community events of the summer, and we were more than happy to return for the BTS Fair’s 16th year, and hope it helped everybody get a little excited for class to start.

Abt's Making News at the WGN Back to School Kids Fair

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

It wasn’t a typical day at the WGN studios, in Chicago, on Friday. Rather, it was all fun and games for the Back to School Kids Fair. Abt’s own, Josh Davis, was in attendance to join in on the fun and showcase the Wii Sports Resort on one of our beautiful Sony TVs. He had a blast with all of the kids showing them all of the great back to school electronics that we were invited to bring to the fair. It wasn’t just Josh that got excited about the Abt tent at the fair, all of the students were excited to have to the chance to have hands-on time to play and experiment with all of the great electronics and gadgets that Abt was invited to exhibit. Josh also handed out Abt Electronics stress balls for those long nights filled with endless studying and homework. I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off the school year than to hang out with a bunch of great kids and play with a bunch of fun electronics—what a great way to end the summer! –Kelly B.
