Town of Dickinson, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A decades-old tradition returned to SUNY Broome Wednesday.

The 40th Senior Picnic and Fun Fest was held at the college and hundreds of seniors came out to enjoy the food and music, as well as socialize with friends.

Rita Fluharty, the Coordinator of Health and Wellness at the college said it's a great opportunity for senior citizens to come out and experience new things.

"Just to find out some new things that are happening that they might not be aware of and then they can get involved in and stay active and stay social and stay healthy," said Fluharty.

The event was put on with the help of volunteer students from SUNY Broome.
