Safety Main Concern at Final FallsFest

The stages are set, the attractions have arrived, and guests of all shapes and sizes are ready. 

Directors of the 30th, and last, edition of FallsFest are working hard to make sure all the activities this year go smoothly. 

"We have the police command out here, as well as Sheppard AFB, provides a lot of security for us in the parking lot and throughout the park and around the stage to make sure we don't have any mishaps out there," Director Sarah Williams said.

The biggest issue for FallsFest staff will be crowd control, which director Krystal Ross says is a good problem to have. 

"You can expect lots of precautions with crowd control, lots of parking available, lots of trolleys coming in and out to get people to their cars safely," Ross assured. 

Also, when the events end tonight, the park will be completely secured, preventing any problems from happening overnight before the crew gets back to Lucy Park on Saturday morning. With a stacked lineup and tons of fun awaiting patrons, it's going to be a great, albeit last, year.
 
"We hope everyone from every surrounding county makes it out here, so as many as this park can hold...bring em on," Williams said. 

Visitors can also park at the MPEC Friday and Saturday and ride a trolley over to Lucy Park. Officials want to remind everyone that you can't bring in any food, drink, or large bags into the venue. 

Also, per the City of Wichita Falls, FallsFest is a smoke free event.
 
In the 30 years of FallsFest, officials say they've never had any incidents regarding security.
