    Are the activities for kids free or is there a cost? You advertised your 2nd Saturday thing as free & that wasn't the case.

    My 13 yr old son fainted Saturday at the Cityfest and was taken to the ER by ambulance, he had stood in line to buy a lemonade for almost an hour, The heat had gotten to him he busted his lip when he fainted, blood pressure was 40/60 pulse was 50 had to
    have an IV of fluids put in him while he was laying on the ground for everyone to see him all cause he couldnt get something to drink fast enough, can water or anything be brought in to this event this weekend? If we could have had a cooler with drinks such
    as water or soda he wouldnt have had this issue!!!
