With better health and longer lives, seniors are an important factor in the collective soul of a community. This year we have an extensive line-up of entertainment and more than 50 health, business and community organization exhibitors taking part in the festival. This year's event will be held at the Aladdin Shrine Center, 3850 Stelzer Rd., near Easton Town Center, from
9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Admission and parking are free. For more information about the Young at Heart Festival contact Young at Heart Festival Director Brian Wesolowski at (614) 410-0246.
