The WAN Expo is a festival for expectant mothers, young parents, and their babies. Its main event is always the traditional "Crawlers Race". According to the competition's rules, toddlers from 6 to 9 months old crawl at high speed on special tracks. They have 2 minutes to cover the distance of 5 meters to the finish line. Parents and guardians can cheer their babies on and give them hints about which direction to go, but they can’t touch the kids during the race. Otherwise, the happy crawler risks disqualification.
