On Monday, both the Davenport Police and Fire Departments released a list to make sure your time spent at MVF 2022 is the best it can be. This list is a great reminder for everyone, but a few items on this list gear toward people bringing kids.

We broke up this list into categories for those that are applicable to you. Most of these apply to everyone, so make sure to read through the entire list.

Keeping Your Body Healthy & Safe

  • Make sure to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated.
  • Use the buddy system and never go off alone from your group.
  • Wear closed-toe shoes, not flip-flops or sandals, to protect your feet.
  • Check the weather. Sunscreen and brightly colored clothes are the best ways to fight against the heat and the sun.

Parents/Guardians Bringing Kids

  • Keep a watchful eye on children. It’s easy to get separated in large crowds.
  • Write a guardian’s phone number in pen on your children’s arms just in case they get lost.
  • Take a photo of your children before visiting so you know their clothing, hairstyle, and have an up-to-date photo should you get separated.
  • Have a designated meeting area should you get separated from your group.

Fairgrounds Attractions

  • Always ask before petting or approaching animals.
  • If a ride stops temporarily due to mechanical failure or other reasons, stay seated and wait for an operator to give you further instructions.
