Dozens of children and adults from both sides of the border gathered for the International Falls Autism Support Group’s third-annual National Autism Awareness Day Walk on Saturday in downtown International Falls. The group met behind Ronning’s at noon, then braved bitterly cold west winds to make it to Smokey Bear Park for a group photo before quickly heading to the nearby Union Hall for a carnival.
