    Lost Children

    Parents / caregivers attending the Du Quoin State Fair with small children are encouraged to stop by the Illinois State Police Safety Education Tent located on the Du Quoin State Fairgrounds on Hayes Avenue across the street from the First Heat Building to obtain a free child ID armband. Should they become separated from their kids, this will enable Troopers to reunite them quickly with their caregivers. Hopefully this free service will help you enjoy the fair all the more!
