Last year, as part of Vacaville People’s Forum’s efforts to host inclusive community events, the local group hosted its first special needs awareness event, “Be You,” in Andrews Park.
The event featured a parade, music, speeches by local dignitaries, and fun activities for all. It ended up drawing an audience of approximately 100.
Organizer Danielle Shea was very pleased with the turnout.
“We were very happy with it,” she said. “We had a lot of feedback from the community saying they had a lot of fun.”
