CONNECTICUT - A Greenwich based non-profit group dedicated to improving the lives of those with autism and their families held an afternoon of entertainment on a farm on Sunday.

Friends of Autistic People held a Family Fun Fest at French Farm. 

The event offered food, games, and a chance to visit with farm animals and explore the grounds. 

“It's very important and worth all the work, nights of emailing reminders and so on because it gives parents an opportunity to meet other parents and see how other children are doing,” says Friends of Autistic People president Brita Darany Von Regensburg.
