The free event is from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Eddie Deen's Ranch, 944 South Lamar Street, Dallas (Mapsco 45-P). Attendees are encouraged to save on parking by riding DART Rail to the nearby Convention Center Station.

A few of the things awaiting senior citizens are health screenings for prostate, blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, and fall risk, as well as lunch, giveaways and fun including dancing with live musical entertainment by Baron Bacon and a special guest appearance by "Ms. Texas Senior" Dr. Syntha West.
