Celebrating our Seniors

18 September 2015
Kingston seniors will have a host of events and activities to choose from to celebrate the annual Kingston Seniors Festival.
Now in its eighth year, the Festival offers a month-long calendar including ballroom dancing, fashion demonstrations, nature walks, art classes, musical performances and much more.
This year the theme of the Victorian Seniors Festival is ‘Celebrating Community’ and aims to honour the accomplishments and value of older people in our community.
Kingston Mayor Geoff Gledhill said there was something for everyone at this year’s festival with over 100 events planned.    “Local community groups have helped us create a fantastic festival for 2015 and I encourage all local seniors to join in and have fun, try a new skill and get involved in your local community,” Cr Gledhill said.
The festival will kick off on Thursday 1 October with a launch at Westfield Southland to showcase performances and displays from local community groups.
Activities on offer during the festival include:
Sports/Active:  Gentle exercise classes, beach walks, lawn bowls, line dancing, strength training, cycling, social tennis, zumba and more.
Health/Education: iPad workshop, road safety for seniors, Skype sessions and more.
Music/Entertainment:  Chelsea Concert Band, Col Perkins, dances, Bobby James, sing-a-long sessions and more.
The Arts: painting workshops, book club, craft, glass painting, author talks, movies and exhibitions.
Outings: mystery tours, coffee morning, nature walks and high-tea.
“These are just a small taste of the literally hundreds of events that are crammed into the month of October. There is something to cater for every interest and a whole month to enjoy it,” Cr Gledhill said.
