Children at last year’s back-to-school-fair.

Hunts Point Riverside Park will be the site of the Hunts Point Alliance for Children’s annual back-to-school fair on Sept. 28 from noon until 4 p.m.

This year’s theme is “Strong bodies and Strong Minds,” with an emphasis on the relationship between health and well-being and academic success.

Among the participants will be the Bronx Children’s Museum, Corbin Hill Farm, City Year, Urban Health Plan, buildOn, Jump Start and the Sarah Lawrence College Child Development Institute. Each school on the peninsula will be showcasing its programs, and parents will be able to find information on health screenings, registration for pre-K and fitness programs.

The Alliance will give away school supplies and show children how to make their own binders. There will be free food, games and music.
