WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - The Beacon Lighthouse for the Blind hosted a White Cane Safety and Awareness event to celebrate the achievements of blind people or those who are visually impaired.

The event featured an activity that allows sighted people to experience a little bit of the world as blind people experience it.

By blindfolding themselves and learning to use the white cane, sighted people will walk around the city block as if blind to understand how the visually impaired navigate the world.

After the walk, there was a cookout for the benefit of Beacon Lighthouse.

The event began at 10 a.m. at the Beacon Lighthouse at 300 7th St. in Wichita Falls.
