U.P. Senior Expo

Hundreds of U.P. seniors get together for a day of fun where they can also learn more about their health.

It’s the annual U.P. Senior Convention and Expo at the State Fairgrounds in Escanaba.

This year’s theme was ‘Come to Mardi Gras’, and more than 650 area elders did.

Many of the more than 100 vendors on hand were focused on health issues, including giving everyone a chance to get the seasonal flu vaccine on the spot.

But the day still had plenty of room for entertainment, food and prizes.

And, of course, the bingo games are also a big hit.

This is the 41st year of the Senior Expo.
