SF Rec and Park Dept. holds prom for senior citizens

The San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department hosted its annual senior prom -- for senior citizens, not high school students.

These seniors danced to some oldies hits, a few waltzes and even learned to lindy hop and tango.

Many were Chinese immigrants who never attended a prom before. Others say they enjoyed a more mature time out than when they were in high school.

The Recreation and Parks Department is already planning a Halloween dance for October.
