School is officially back in session but people in Gray had one last hoorah as they said goodbye to summer vacation.

On Saturday, Main Street Gray hosted its annual Beach Bash as a kick-off to the school year.

Executive director Haley Watson says it's events like these that bring the community together.

"Honestly we want to bring something back to our community. We want to have events in our local community that people can come and enjoy and participate in, and they can just have fun and not have to go to Macon or Milledgeville… to have something in Gray for everybody to enjoy,” said Watson.

Macon Street Gray’s next big event will be a trunk or treat in October.
