As a postlude to Key West Days, this day honors and celebrates our older visitors who enjoy coming to Put-in-Bay island year after year. Many are snow birds and they enjoy the warm temperate Lake Erie summers before going down to Florida to get some more sun while the island gets all icy.
This is a great day to visit the Bay and enjoy all the sights and sounds and maybe even discover a new favorite spot! National Senior Citizens Day is an observance and not a public holiday in the US.
This observance was established in honor of senior citizens in the US who made positive contributions in their communities. The day was also created to bring awareness of social, health, and economic issues that affect senior citizens.
