Two additional water tanks will be available at the Children’s Fest event this Friday and Saturday at Purdue Fort Wayne.

The TRF Board of Directors is asking guests to keep safe during the heatwave by wearing lightweight, loose-fitting clothing and a wide-brimmed hat; using sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more; and drinking extra fluids to prevent dehydration.
