TARCOG is committed to celebrating seniors every day, but, together with the Madison County Commission, we host an annual event during the month May to commemorate and celebrate our seniors during national Older Americans Month. The Senior Fun Fest! (formerly known as the Older Americans Festival) has been a big hit for seniors for nearly three decades. Due to popular demand, the event is coming home to Sharon Johnston Park in New Market.
This event will be fun and seniors can enjoy a variety of events, entertainment and games. We will be showcasing local talent with some culturally diverse entertainment, as well as have games with prizes such as putt-putt golf, Bingo, Plinko, Nerf ball and Frisbee Toss. Seniors can come to fish in the lake if they want to, sit and enjoy the fun and music and join in with all of the activities. Seniors can also have a fun picture taken at “Ready for My Close-up” and bring home a memento of the fabulous day they will have.
The Senior Fun Fest! will be on Tuesday May 6, 2014, from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM at Sharon Johnston Park in New Market. The cost of tickets in advance is $3.00 and $4.00 at the event if tickets are still available. So, please purchase your tickets in advance. Lunch will also be provided to ticket holders.
Please contact TARCOG or your local senior center for tickets or more details.
(If needed, there is a rain date scheduled for Friday, May 9th.)
