The United Seniors of Oakland (USOAC) and Alameda County held their 15th Annual Healthy Living Festival to promote health and wellness for senior citizens at the Oakland Zoo last week.

More than 2,000 Alameda County seniors attended the fair, which featured 64 exhibitors, Tai Chi, Zumba, line dancing lessons, and the chance to walk through the zoo.
