Civic Centre to host first annual Autism and Family Support Fair on Saturday

A full day of connecting with the community is ahead this Saturday, as the group Prince Rupert Family Connections hosts an opportunity to learn more about Autism and to help those that may need some assistance to find support for your family.

All of it wrapped up in a day of fun for everyone at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre.

As well as some popular Prince Rupert attractions will be in place around the Civic Centre,with the fair featuring Bubble Trouble, the Bouncy Castle and some fun with the Good Times Games Hexbugs.

The day also offers up specific sessions for those children who may not be able to attend a larger, louder event.
