More Video...

Earlier we told you how to get to the Peanut Festival safely, but there are some things you should know once you put your car in park and get ready to enjoy the food and festivities.

News 4's Cynthia Washington talked with National Peanut festival organizers today about being safe at the fairgrounds.

Organizers encourage everyone not to take valuables, like purses, into the festival with them.

However, cell phones are the exception.

Organizers say it is the best way to keep in contact with someone.

They say if possible, give it to your child just in case you get separated from them.

If you can’t give them a phone, then put your cell phone number in their pocket so parents can be contacted if children get lost.

Lt Todd Davis said, "There is so many people at the midway having a good time, but sometimes they forget, and then are like, oh goodness where is little Johnny, he just walked away from me. Usually we can reunite such an instance momentarily within minutes."

Arm bands are available for kids as well.

They are white wrist bands and they will reunite a child with their parents.

There are law enforcement around the festival that you are encouraged to approach if there is a problem
