Phoenix Park in downtown Lexington will be hosting the annual White Cane Safety Day on Tuesday, October 15th from 11 am to 2 pm.

Multiple organizations that cater to the blind and visually impaired will set up booths offering information. There will also be games, demonstrations of different blind sports, and a White Cane Awareness Walk at noon.

From 2-5 pm, the public is also invited to tour the Central Kentucky Radio Eye Studio and Blindness Awareness Exhibit at Lexington's Northside Library Branch.

Transportation will be provided from Phoenix Park to the Northside Branch for those who need a ride.

Governor Steve Beshear has proclaimed October as Blindness and Visual Impairment Month. In recognition, all six Lexington-Fayette County Public Library locations are offering blindness awareness displays.
