Lost children should be taken to the Carmel Police Department tent on the south side of the Carmel Fire Department.

PLEASE NOTE: CarmelFest has instituted a “no pet policy” due to extreme heat, along with hot pavement and sidewalks.  This policy is in the best interest of your pets and our event attendees.  Please leave your pets in the comfort of their cooler homes while you attend the CarmelFest parade and event festivities. 

And, please, DO NOT leave your children or pets in a hot car!
