ROYAL OAK, Mich. -

Senior citizens living in Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties are invited Wednesday to enjoy a day at the Detroit Zoo on Senior Day.

On Wednesday, Sept. 4 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., seniors 62 and older and a caregiver will receive free admission, parking and rides on the Tauber Family Railroad, Detroit Zoo officials said.

Senior Day will also feature live music, tractor train tours, bingo, a senior resource area and zookeeper talks highlighting some of the Zoo's senior animal residents.

In addition, officials said Blue Care Network and the SilverSneakers Fitness Program are pairing up to offer a free group exercise class, exercise demos and functional fitness assessments.

The fall Senior Day is one of two free days for tri-county seniors held annually at the Detroit Zoo in appreciation for voter approval in 2008 of a ballot proposal to fund the Zoo, officials said.
