The City of Ocala Recreation and Parks Department will host the 40th annual Parade of Senior Services Information Fair on Friday, March 17, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the College of Central Florida’s Klein Conference Center.

The event will showcase nonprofit agencies that provide a variety of services ranging from social, health, education, and more to the senior citizens of Ocala/Marion County and surrounding areas. Many individuals attend this yearly event to obtain information on services they are seeking or may need in the future.

Attendees will obtain information on various health insurance companies, long-term care facilities, services for the blind, and social services offered by Marion County, such as the board of elections, electric, and veteran services.

During the event, Cano Health’s mobile unit will be on-site to offer a variety of services including blood pressure checks, glucose checks, oxygen level checks, and more. Florida Blue will also give a presentation on Medicare.

The Parade of Senior Services Information Fair will be held at the College of Central Florida’s Ocala campus (3001 SW College Road), and it is free to attend for anyone who is 50 years of age or older.
