Today the Yaiza Ayuntamiento have put in place a date for which those on the autism spectrum can enjoy the Playa Blanca fair with reduced lights and less noise.

The Yaiza Ayutamiento in collaboration with the vendors and machine operators at the Playa Blanca fair have agreed that on Thursday the 14th of July they will reduce the lights and noise so that those on the autism spectrum can enjoy the festival.

Between 6 – 7pm on Thursday the 14th of July, children and young people can enjoy the fun of the festival without worrying about a sensory overload.

The Ayuntamiento’s Celebrations Councillor appreciates “the willingness of the vendors to agree to this addition to raise awareness among the population about the situation of people with autism.”.
