Focus on Accessibility — Special plans for special needs set for Last Fling


The Naperville Jaycees have set in place plans to make this year’s Last Fling accessible for people of all abilities.

Accessible parking, accessible shuttle service, accessible viewing areas and other accommodation information can be found on their website: www.lastfling.org.

Once again, the Naperville Last Fling Carnival will provide rides for free and with priority, no-wait boarding for children with special needs. This will be offered from 10AM to noon on Sun., Sept. 2.

All children must be accompanied by an adult. Stop at the Naperville Jaycees volunteer trailer located on Eagle Street at the bridge to get a wristband for participation in this program.

I’ve been told by many families who participate in the special needs carnival time, that it not only provides an enjoyable time for their children who have special needs, but often siblings miss out on this type of a fun family outing because it is not easy or too over stimulating for their brother or sister, so the entire family does not attend.

Thank you, Naperville Jaycees, for accommodating families with children who have special needs.

The 2012 Last Fling Carnival is a fun experience for the whole family, located along Jackson Ave. between Main and Ewing Streets. Take advantage of Carnival Deal Day from 10AM to 4PM, Sat., Sept. 1, with unlimited rides for $20 per person.
