Public Safety Notes:
It is recommended that parents take a picture of their children once you arrive at the festival. Pictures of kids and what they are wearing at the actual event are very helpful in the unfortunate & unlikely event that your child becomes lost at the festival. Police will be able to quickly share the current photo with emergency staff onsite and find your child quickly.
If you or someone in your party needs medical assistance at the event, please notify a police officer right away and they will call for medical assistance.
