The 34th annual Lancaster Senior Games took place May 6-10 at Spooky Nook Sports in Manheim.

Coordinated by the Lancaster County Office of Aging and assisted by more than 300 volunteers, county residents age 55 and older competed in more than 40 athletic events.

Most popular were hip-hop dance, line dancing, folk dancing, and pound exercise, with new events including ladder golf, cornhole, and bocce.

Because of rain, organizers had to scramble to relocate the pickleball events indoors and bump those events back a day, said Lisa Paulson, Senior Games coordinator with the Office of Aging.

“We still had over 130 players attend, even though the day was changed at the last minute,” she said.

Javelin events were held indoors this year, which yielded a higher number of participants, Paulson said.

Running events could be moving indoors in 2025 so weather won’t be a factor. Next year’s Senior Games will be held May 6-10, 2025.
