The Prairie Arts and Howlinâ€™ Wolf Memorial Blues festivals getting closer by the minute, preparations are headed down the home stretch. Festival coordinators and law enforcement officials have turned their eyes to one of the most important aspects of the weekend: safety.
West Point Clay County Growth Alliance Director â€” and Prairie Arts festival coordinator â€” Lisa Klutts said the Growth Alliance works with the West Point Police Department and Clay County Sheriffâ€™s Department to make the event at Sally Kate Winters Park as safe as possible.
â€śThis is a family-friendly environment and we take the safety of the public and our vendors very seriously,â€ť Klutts said. â€śWeâ€™re mindful of what it takes to maintain a safe environment with 40,000 people potentially packed into our downtown.â€ť
