Flower Mound home care providers know that no matter how old seniors get, it’s important for them to remain active in the community. One of the best ways to stay socially active is for seniors to check out local events and activities. Following are a handful of seasonal activities seniors can enjoy this fall.
Volunteer to Plant Trees
Seniors can enhance the natural beauty in Denton by becoming a Citizen Forester for the chance to plant dozens of trees throughout the city. They can practice by using their green thumbs to clean up the city and enhance its appeal during the fall season. Participants can enroll in community classes to learn how to plant, prune and maintain the trees in the urban setting of Denton.
Watch a Movie in the Park
A fun seasonal activity for Denton seniors is to see a movie in the park during the Halloween. Here seniors can bring a blanket and lawn chairs to sit on the grass during the film. Quakertown Park will be featuring Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides at 8pm, but guests are welcome to come earlier to take part in the pre-movie activities at 7pm. Guests can even order snacks at a concessions stand or bring some freshly popped popcorn and drinks of their own.
Dress Up a Pet
Elderly locals are encouraged to attend the Haunts and Hounds event at The Shops at Highland Village to enter their dog or cat in a spirited costume contest. The event is free to attend and is a great way for seniors to engage not only with their furry friends, but also fellow pet lovers in the community.
Visit an Outdoor Festival
What could be better than celebrating the Day of the Dead at an outdoor festival that will be held in the streets of downtown Denton? Seniors can participate by bringing a paper lantern that will light up the dark while walking in the event’s parade. Those who enjoy spicy food can also judge a salsa competition where the locals enter their favorite recipes with a side of chips. Denton’s Day of the Dead wouldn’t be complete without a bit of spooky storytelling where short stories and chilling poetry will be read aloud for guests who don’t mind a little fright to their night.
