Mardi Gras is such a fun time to celebrate with family and friends. For those parading with children, we offer these safety tips:
- Have your name and contact information on their person, so you can be contacted if they should get lost
- Set up a meeting spot in case they get separated from you
- Remind them not to get too close to the floats or bend down to pick anything up, lest they get their fingers stepped on by other parade-goers
- Be wary of what children catch, especially toddlers, who could choke on broken beads or the eye of a stuffed animal
If an accident were to occur, get directions to our ER.
