FREE Family Fun Day Happening in Rochester, Minnesota

If you've got a child that is sensitive to loud noises, lights, or sounds, it can be a challenge to find fun activities to do as a family.  I know because I've been in those shoes.  Loud music and flashing lights are two things that are challenging for a member of my family and unfortunately, that is a lot of the world.

If you've been looking for a fun, family-friendly event that is sensory-friendly, a free event is happening on Saturday, May 20th in Rochester, Minnesota.  A lot of thought has gone into making this a safe and comfortable event for everyone.
