Mayor Martin J. Walsh took several seniors for a twirl at a Mother’s Day luncheon in East Boston earlier today.

The event, which is hosted annually by the East Boston Golden Age Club, was held at Spinelli’s on Bennington Street just after noon.


While the mayor did not perform any solo performances, he “was a good sport and enjoyed a spin around the dance floor while the entire room sang ‘That’s Amore,’” said Kate Norton, a spokeswoman for the mayor.

The mayor and about 120 seniors were served Italian wedding soup and fusilli pasta with red sauce prior to the festive singing and dancing, Norton said.
