Here’s To A Fantastic Father’s Day

Whether the Dad in your life likes to get out on the town or out in nature, likes an afternoon of great food and family, or prefers a quiet and rest-filled day – I have some ideas to share for this upcoming weekend, to celebrate everything ‘Dad’! 

When Dad Likes The Farm Life | Dads and Grandfathers are FREE at Hunt Club Farm in Virginia Beach on Father’s Day when accompanied by a child. What could be more fun than a treetop adventure, petting farm, and bird walk with Dad.

When Dad Should Be In Pictures | Village Studio Arts in Newport News is offering a portraiture class on Sunday, June 19th at 1:00pm, where kids will use acrylic paints on canvas to paint their father or grandfather.


When Dad Loves The Sporting Life | The Norfolk Tides ARE IN! On Sunday, June 19th the Tides will play the Syracuse Mets at 1:05pm at Harbor Park in Norfolk. Plus, if you arrive early, you can enjoy a pre-game ‘Catch On The Field’ with Dad from 11:30am to 12:30pm. 


When Dad Is A History Buff | The Military Aviation Museum in Pungo is holding its Flying Proms event on Saturday, June 18th at 5:00pm. It is a celebration of music, historic aircraft, food, fun, and fireworks!


When Dad Is A Food Fan | Treat Dad to the best Angus Philly Cheesesteak sandwich that we have tasted in a long time at the new Fry’s BIG Kitchen in Kempsville. With BIG in the name, you know that Dad will love it! 


When Dad Is An Original | A thoughtful gift for Dad is helping him discover his roots with a 23andMe Ancestry Kit. The company is currently offering $50 off for Father’s Day. 

“Dads are most ordinary men turned by love into heroes,
adventurers, storytellers, and singers of song.”


Remember that a perennial Father’s Day gift is the gift of your time. Family time spent together is the true gift. Happy Father’s Day!
