October is here and with it comes the 2019 Victorian Seniors Festival!

Cardinia Shire Council is joining in on the state-wide celebrations by supporting a variety of local events throughout October.

Hundreds of local seniors will ‘get in to it’, as suggested by the theme for this year’s festival, with many free and low-cost events on offer.
