More than 1,000 Meriden children and their parents came out to the downtown HUB for the city's eighth annual Tuesday. 

Meriden students going into pre-k through eighth grade received free backpacks filled with grade-appropriate supplies and were encouraged to visit the more than 30 vendors at the show, ranging from the Meriden Health Department to Valentin Karate.
