Macomb County Senior Fun Festival to return for 31st annual event
Local seniors are invited to attend the 31st annual Senior Fun Festival hosted by the Macomb County Office of Senior Services on Thursday, October 20 from 9 a.m. to Noon. The event will be held at the Lorenzo Cultural Center at Garfield and Hall Road in Clinton Township. It is the first festival since 2019.
“We’re so excited to resume offering this outstanding event for Macomb County seniors,” said Sheila Coté, director, Macomb County Office of Senior Services. “There will be nearly 100 vendors who specialize in the needs of aging individuals.”
Planned activities include:
- Free health screenings
- Live entertainment
- Balloon artists
- A walking magician
- Photo booth
- Parking lot shuttle service
“Here in Macomb County, we value our senior citizens,” said Macomb County Executive Mark A. Hackel. “Our Senior Fun Festival is the perfect setting to connect with our seniors and ensure they are aware of all the programs and partners that are here to help them thrive in Macomb.”
The Senior Fun Festival also creates an opportunity for attendees to learn more about supports and services available to local seniors and caregivers.
“Our goal is to help Macomb County residents age in place,” said Nicole Urban, program manager, Macomb County Office of Senior Services. “So often having just one or two services can make an impact for a senior to remain in their own home. Programs like Meals on Wheels, home care or transportation services, can make a world of difference for both the senior and their caregiver.”
