DON'T: Park on the fairgrounds. Parking there is limited and costs $10 and $20. 

DO: Park at one of four Fair Transit System locations, and ride the free shuttle to the fair.

FAIR SECTION: Everything you need to know about the Tulsa State Fair

DO: Make sure your child is wearing a wristband. If you ever get separated from them, and they're wearing a wristband, sheriff's deputies  can call you and help you locate them. 

DON'T: Panic if you forget a wristband for your child. If sheriff's deputies find a child without one they take them to an area for missing children. It'll take longer to find your child, but there will be a place to pick them up if you've separated from them. 

DO: Feel safe. There will be 50 sheriff's deputies patrolling the grounds. 

DON'T: Leave your car unlocked, or lose track of personal items. 

DO: Use the hashtag #sharewith2 to show us how much fun you're having on social media!
