National Grandparents Day will be celebrated all week long by the City of El Paso Parks and Recreation at Senior Centers from September 9-16, 2015.

Since 1978, National Grandparents Day is observed to honor our elders and to give them an opportunity to shine and share their knowledge and love of their families. The special day is always recognized the first Sunday after Labor Day, which this year will be Sept. 13, 2015.

El Paso’s 10 Senior Centers will have a variety of fun-filled action packed events honoring grandparents along with entertainment and free dances available to the public.

For more information call (915) 544-0753.
