The Seaport event happened at the end of September and it takes over the entire pier! Families and school groups, Girl Scout troupes and College Fraternities join together after raising funds and donating time to support people with autism. There are also a bunch of booths with organizations that support everything from supportive therapy for people on the spectrum to educational foundations and schools.
Of course Autism Speaks has their own tents with resources and additional booths with healthy snacks and water for all those in attendance.
I arrived early to run through the layout and register at the volunteer tent. After I got my button I headed up to registration area to get my Blue Pompom to shake as all of these events are sensory friendly. Now it was time to turn on the bubbles! I have found in the last year or two that the best prop to work with at this and many other events is a very productive bubble wand-machine.
