How To Keep Children Safe At The Twin Falls County Fair


By Ben Lyda

Filer, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) The Twin Falls County Fair is crowded every year, and if you're a parent you know how easy it can be to lose track of the little ones.

Each year the fair provides a service to keep children safe; it's called the Lost Child's Booth.

Within a flash they are gone, and with the large crowds and their small size children can disappear in seconds.

"You're in a crazy hectic thing, your kid can get lost in a heartbeat”, said Breht Rands a local parent.

The Lost Child's Booth, located near food ally is being run by the Buhl High School cheerleaders this year.

Parents can sign up their children to keep them safe in one easy step.
"They just have to come to the booth and ask for a bracelet and we'll write down their name and numbers, and on the back of the child's bracelet we put it”, said Daisha Hardy a volunteer

It is always a good idea to have a plan before you get to the fair. If family members do get separated, where do you go and who do you ask for.

"They kind of know where to go, I mean they are all little, but they know that's where we'll be at if they do get lost so that helps”, said Rands

Volunteers are on hand to help, if you and your kids do get separated.

"It's just to make sure that all kids are safe and if they get lost, or even before they get lost, we have bracelets so that when they do get lost we can call their parents and just make sure everybody's safe”, said Hardy
