I tried to take my daughter a few years ago on a Sunday and some asshole was blowing weed discharge on us, so I decided it wasn't family friendly enough.
I am glad you brought this up. This has been a real concern of mine as well. Two years ago, some losers, high on something were pole dancing on the playground equipment right by the kids art area. Between that, the weed, and topless women, I refused to bring my kids to Comfest either. (Of course, the GPC acted like I was a big prude). I also know what it is like to have to park 10 blocks away and have to push a stroller all the way to the park. You and the kids are completely exhausted before you even get started. Lines are too long, and it is way too hot. I am always horrified that parents stick their kids in that big bouncy thing when it feels like it is 95 in the shade.
So, if you look, we have children's programming early. It wont be so hot and miserable, crowded, and you wont have to park so far away. You can get in, your kids can get their grove on, hang out in Kids Art, you can catch a band or two and be out of there before the hippies smoke their first bowl.
Page 24 of the program lists the specific acts and times.
The bands at the offramp are pretty cute.
ENDLESS RECESS is a five-piece Columbus, Ohio band that plays music for kids and their parents. Our song selections are upbeat tunes from kids’ movies (e.g., Shrek, Cars, Jungle Book), new and old kids’ TV shows (e.g., Spongebob, Scooby Doo, Peanuts), and family-friendly dance songs. Our performances are high-energy, interactive and fun. Although we are kid-focused, our music and show are not exclusive to kids because our tasty song choices appeal to adults too.
