People stood in line for hours Thursday morning for the chance to receive free school supplies.
The 17th annual Dallas Mayor's Back to School Fair was scheduled to open at Fair Park's Automobile and centennial Building at 8 a.m. But some people arrived as early as 2 a.m. to get in line with the hope of getting through ahead of the heat.
While they waited they were at least entertained by activities, music and Mayor Mike Rawlings dancing.
The city of Dallas, Dallas Independent School District and various agencies expect to provide free supplies to nearly 15,000 children from low income families. There were also free dental and vision screenings, free haircuts and informational booths.
