What exactly does "sensory-friendly" entail? It means that on a chosen day, for two hours, the carnival will cater specifically to those with sensory sensitivities. During this time, every effort will be made to minimize noise and lights, creating a serene atmosphere where individuals can enjoy the attractions without feeling overwhelmed.
