LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Riverfest coordinators and THV 11 want to help provide a plan for kids and their families who become separated.
The scariest thing for children is to become separated from their family during a huge, crowded event. And the worst feeling is not knowing where to go to be reunited with loved ones.
At Riverfest events, there are four Information Tents strategically placed throughout the park. Families are encouraged to visit these booths and discuss "Sunny's Safety Plan" before enjoying the day's activities. They will be introduced to the booth volunteers and "Sunny."
"Sunny" will be posted on a big sign at each booth and the volunteers will give children a "Look For Sunny" sticker to wear with a place for the parents cell phone number.
If a child becomes lost, they will look for the "Sunny" symbol and know that it is a safe place to go. Once a child arrives at the booth, he or she will not be allowed to leave until a family member claims them.
