Also our No Child Lost (NCL) program will be back.  Upon entry into the festival, stop at the NCL tent where your child will receive a wristband for you to write your cell phone number on, and where you can take a photo of what your child is wearing at the festival.  Should your child become lost simple go to the Lost Child/First Aid room or contact any nearby officer where you can show your child’s photo and the search will begin.  Hopefully in no time at all your child will be back safe and sound with you to continue enjoying the festival activities.

The safety and security of our patrons is the most important issue for us. If you are separated from your child, our volunteers and police will communicate with each other until your child is found and you are reunited.
