Area seniors had a unique chance to relax and socialize this afternoon.

The City of Hastings hosted Senior Fest 2013 at the Hastings Auditorium.

Music, food and games...

Sounds like a nice change of pace for anyone's Wednesday afternoon.

YMCA and and Kensington Assisted Living were among the groups at today's event.

A big bingo game was played and popcorn was provided to all in attendance.

Plenty of seniors have made this event a tradition.

Some have been going back for a few years now.

"It means getting out of the villa and coming and seeing a lot of old people,” said Marvin DeVaughn, a local senior citizen. “Because I'm an old man, too."

Free transportation was provided by Good Samaritan and Ryde Transit.
