With this year’s festival comes new rules in order to keep you safe.
The rice festival brings in around 200-thousand people over the weekend. With so many people attending, police are strictly enforcing new rules.
Officers say there is a 1-thousand dollar fine for people caught fighting.
You also have to wear a wristband if you want to purchase an alcoholic drink.
Another big concern is children getting lost. Police are recommending parents take full-length pictures of their children on smart phones right before coming to the festival.
