Those wanting to hit the town tonight can look forward to a free flick, some tunes from a local band and some free school supplies to boot.

The 20th annual back-to-school Readifest will begin at 7 p.m. at Bluegrass Community and Technical College, 2020 Rolling Hills Lane.

Visitors can stop by vendors’ booths to pick up various school supplies, from pencils to folders, coloring supplies and backpacks. About 50 vendors, some businesses and some community organizations, have registered to take part in this year’s Readifest.

The annual supply festival is running in conjunction with BCTC’s third installment of the annual Moonlight Movie Nights. Besides the free school supplies, visitors can also expect inflatables, food vendors and a showing “The LEGO Batman Movie” at 9 p.m.

Back in downtown Winchester, the air will be filled with the music of local band Primecut during the Rock the Block summer concert series from 7 to 9 p.m. on the courthouse lawn.
