ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

On Friday at the Albany Civic Center, some Albany senior citizens turned back time and hit the dance floor.

The Albany Parks and Recreation Department, police and others hosted a senior prom for those 50 and older.

The evening featured some of the top hits from now and decades past. 

The event was held at the Albany Civic Center. 

A 95-year-old woman was recognized for her love of the recreational programs the city has to offer.   

"If I didn't get to go to my high school prom back then, I have a second chance. That's what this is all about. Coming down to downtown Albany to meet new friends," said Recreation Supervisor Tee Taylor.

The dance was sold out Friday night.
