How should we prepare our child for a day at Waco Cultural Arts Fest?
Waco Cultural Arts Fest is a large festival with many attendees and is a wonderful experience for children. Wear cool clothes and remember art can be messy! As with any outing, please make sure to go over basic safety rules with children before arriving at the Festival. Remind children to stay within your sight at all times. Also point out information booth locations and Volunteer Team members to children so they know whom to ask for help if they should become separated from you. Police Security is on site.
What is KidSafe?

What should we do if our child becomes separated from us?
