Autism Walk and Children's Carnival are Sunday in Bidwell Park

Benefit for Little Red Hen's local Autism Programs.

Posted: Apr 2, 2018 6:48 PM


April is Autism Awareness Month, so what better time to host a Children's Fair that helps local kids with Autism?  That's what the folks at Little Red Hen say, as they prepare for Sunday's Children's Carnival and Autism Resource Fair at Sycamore Field in Chico's lower Bidwell Park. The Center for Disease Control places the current rates of autism at 1/88 children

The April 8th event kicks off with "Chico Walks for Autism" hosted by the Yellow Door. It will include live music and food trucks.  Registration starts at 8:30 a.m., the walk starts at 9 a.m. The cost is $10. People of all ages are welcome. The mission of The Yellow Door is to give support to individuals with autism and their families while promoting student leadership and involvement in the Chico community. 

The Children's Carnival gets underway at 10 a.m. and runs until 2 p.m.  There will be sensory activities, a bounce house, food, autism resources and games. Admission is FREE, and so is the bounce house. Game tickets cost 25 cents. All of the money raised will benefit Little Red Hen's austism program for children. 

Little Red Hen is a non-profit organization serving children and adults with developmental disabilities.  It has five retail locations in the Chico area that provide employment ffor about 125 developmentally disabled adults. 100% of sales  benefit quality programs for children and adults with developmental disabilities like Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, and other cognitive disabilities.
