Putting dad in the spotlight this Sunday
This year we celebrate the 100th anniversary of Father's Day.
Every third Sunday of June, we mark the occasion.
It's the day historically set aside to honor dear ol' dad from sun-up to sundown.
If you're wondering exactly how to go about it this year, we've got a few ideas you might want to consider.
Celebrate dad’s special day at the Dallas Zoo
This Saturday and Sunday only - in honor of Father's Day - all Zoo guests will pay the children’s rate for admission. That’s just $9 per person, ages 3 and above.
Children ages 2 and under and Dallas Zoological Society members are always free and parking is $7.
You might also considering take columnist Cindy Engel's advice (from her June column here) and head down on the DART.
Take dad to Picasso's for a FREE original cheeseburger
Don't let Dad slave over a hot grill on his big day. Take him to Picasso's and let him enjoy a signature 8 oz. beef cheeseburger - free just for dad!
You'll also find a special $2 domestic longnecks deal going on all day Sunday. Dad might really like this one!
Giggle, Giggle, Quack opens this weekend at Dallas Children's Theater
The premiere was Friday night, and this cute family-friendly play runs through July 25th.
It's the musical sequel to the last season's popular production, Click, Clack, Moo: Cows that Type!
Based on the book by Doreen Cronin & Betsy Lewin, with lyrics by George Howe, dad just might enjoy not being in the spotlight for a couple hours - and the air conditioned theater is a bonus, too!
Let dad practice his swing at Top Golf
Day-long specials in honor of dad include:
$10 Miniature Golf for the entire family
$6.50 Turkey Legs
$9 Domestic Pitchers
Top Golf specials are good beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, June 20th.
Dallas Arboretum offers a dad-discount
This Sunday dads get into the garden at half price.
That's just $5 and includes the opportunity to enjoy a Frank Sinatra tribute concert at 1:00 p.m.
So pack up your picnic lunch and treat dad to a relaxing day at the Arboretum.
No matter what you decide to do, we hope dad enjoys his special day.
In honor of the newest fathers, the old hands, and in remembrance of those no longer with us, we hope everyone finds time to honor and love on dear ol' dad this Sunday.
