Dubai: A festival and walk aimed to raise awareness about autism will be held in a Dubai park on Saturday.
Happening for the eighth time, the event will see children and adults take part in a three-kilometre walk through Zabeel Park.
Organisers hope that the event encourage the local community to engage with people with autism, and to help them integrate into society.
The Camelicious Global Autism Awareness Festival & Walk will take place from 5pm to 9pm at Zabeel Park, Gate 3.
The event is free to enter. Participants may register on the event’s website walkforautismdubai.com.
