Give Dad the gift of great memories on Father’s Day 2015
Sure, a new power tool, putter, or grilling utensils make great Father’s Day gifts, but what your dad really wants is to spend quality time with his family. While a day at home has its advantages, the best way to create some great memories with your dad is to get out enjoy one of the many Father’s Day weekend activities and events in Edmonton. To help you get started on planning a great Father’s Day 2015, here are a few activities you and your dad might love.
Where: Borden Park
When: June 19-21
The 2nd annual Porkapalooza BBQ festival in Edmonton AB screams “DAD!”. Whether you and your dad want to enter a BBQ team into the competition or you just want to kick back and enjoy some amazing food, this Father’s Day weekend extravaganza will provide a happy Father’s Day to any dad. Be sure to be there for the Father’s Day Brunch on Sunday!
Father’s Day Show & Shine Car Show
When: June 21 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
As one of Edmonton’s premier Honda dealerships, we’re a little partial to this one. The 14th annual Father’s Day Show and Shine Car Show in Edmonton AB is a great opportunity to see some incredible vehicles and enjoy some free BBQ. There are also kid-friendly activities, making this a great event for the entire family.
Do It For Dads Walk/Run
Where: Sir Wilfred Laurier Park
When: June 21
The Do It For Dads Walk/Run is a great way to kick off Father’s Day 2015 in Edmonton. In addition to the 1.6 km and 5k walk/run events, there will be live music, kid’s activities and sponsor-supplied snacks for participants to enjoy before or after they cross the finish line. Proceeds from the event benefit Prostate Cancer Canada.
If you want to give your dad a little something extra as a gift, you can order automotive accessories and purchase gift cards from the Wheaton Honda service center, which he’ll surely appreciate.
