The Fall Festival is a week full of fundraising, and huge crowds on Franklin Street. With the crowds of course comes safety concerns. EPD does a great job at making sure the Fall Festival is a fun and safe event,  but here's some tips they've shared to help make the event a little safer for little ones.

A few of their tips include:

  • Discuss the crowds with your child beforehand so they know what to expect.
  • Take a photo of your child before you go to the Fall Festival so you have an updated photo and what they're wearing.
  • Point out Police Officers and Nut Club members to your child in case they get lost, they know they can trust those adults to help them.
