May is "Older Atlantans Month" in the city and Mayor Kasim Reed joined in celebrating Atlanta seniors on Monday. Hundreds of older Atlantans took part in the festive salute held inside a decked out City Hall atrium.

Mayor Reed showed off some of his moves on the dance floor, calling the event a great  way to express appreciation for all the contributions of older city residents.
