A colourful league of superheroes gathered on the foreshores of Lake Albert.
This super important – but not very secret – meeting was the 2018 Superhero Walk for Autism.
Dozens of children and adults dressed in the costumes of their favourite superheroes and set off from Apex Park for the annual event.
There were plenty of Spidermen, Iron Men, Wonder Women, Supermen, and even an old-school Zorro or two.
Wagga Mayor Greg Conkey and his wife Jenny – dressed in Batman and Superman T-shirts – brought their grandsons to the walk, while member for Wagga Daryl Maguire teamed up with member for Riverina and Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack to stroll along the foreshore.
One of the organisers, Deb Bewick from Wagga Autism Support Group, was thrilled with the turnout.
Ms Bewick said the walk has had strong support for the past five years and this community involvement was only growing.
She said the increasing support seemed to be in line with a growing community awareness and understanding of autism.
“There is a lot more positive media attention about autism,” Ms Bewick said.
In addition to the walk, there were craft and fun stalls, a jumping castle and a barbecue lunch.
There was also some hot competition for the prizes for the best dressed superhero.
