Fillies & Colts Activities
At our Kids Corral located in the front of Fillies and Colts, adults can register their children and receive a wristband. In the instance a child is lost, we have a quick, efficient, and reliable method to reunite them with their guardians. This is also a great meeting place for kids and parents in the event they get separated. Kids Corral will be staffed and open during the full duration of the festival.
