Use the gate 3 drive instead of dropping them off in the Apple Valley plaza lot...lots of room to turn around....even those walking in have to pay the daily entry fee or use a pass..... Have a family meeting point and use it on a regular basis.Take a PHOTO of your younger children on your phone in case YOU get separated from them, thay are having fun and need your attention..but if you should become separated you will have a photo to show police officers and fair staff. Always keep your car locked (no matter where you are at) and valuable items out of sight. The Youth Fair is a great place to have family fun...staying safe can help ensure a fun time!
