Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) will host the Older Americans Month Information & Health Fair on Thursday, May 26, at Centennial Hall in historic Fair Park, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The annual event is one of the largest held in North Texas.
Seniors are encouraged to save on parking and ride DART’s Green Line directly to Fair Park Station. The free event showcases businesses and public services of special interest to older adults, caregivers, and families, as well as provides health screenings and giveaways. The event will feature live entertainment from the Dallas Tap Dazzlers, Ms. Senior America, Skyline Jazz Band, and more.
In May, the U.S. Administration on Aging, part of the Administration for Community Living, leads our nation’s observance of Older Americans Month, which celebrates the many ways in which older adults make a difference in our communities.
This year’s theme, Age My Way, will focus on aging in place – how older adults can plan to stay in their homes and live independently in their communities for as long as possible. It’s also an opportunity for all of us to explore the many ways older adults can remain in and be involved with their communities.
Community partners supporting the fair this year include the City of Dallas, Dallas Parks & Recreation, Dallas Police Department, Dallas Area Agency on Aging, Community Council, Fair Park First, and The Senior Source.
