Father’s Day is this weekend…Have you made any plans to celebrate dad? If you haven’t, fear not, as your friends at Only in Your State have compiled a list of Father’s Day events as unique as your old man! Here are 10 places in Kansas where you can take dad this Father’s Day:
1.) The Athletic Dad: Father’s Day Run (Overland Park)
Challenge dad to a friendly bet -- whoever has the best time at the race gets treated to ice cream!
2.) The Car Enthusiast Dad: Father's Day Car Show (Salina)
Treat dad to this automobile enthusiast's dream come true (and visit all your favorite animals at the Rolling Hills Zoo, the location of the Car Show.)
3.) The Farming Dad: Southeast Kansas Old Time Gas Engine and Tractor Show (Pittsburg)
The event takes place the weekend AFTER Father's Day, but is still worth noting since it is an area favorite.
4.) The Geeky Dad: Smallville Comic Con (Hutchinson)
Does your dad dream of meeting Lando Calrissian (whose dad hasn't?) Or does he enjoy playing video games in his spare time? Then Comic Con is the place you gotta go!
5.) The Historian Dad: Washunga Days (Council Grove)
Watch history come to life at this family friendly event featuring shows, parades, and (not really historic, but still fun) carnival rides.
6.) The Beer Connoisseur: Boulevardia (Kansas City)
"A nation rich in beer, food, music, and beer." What else could dad possibly want?!
7.) The Kid at Heart Dad: Father's Day Kite Festival (Wichita)
Dad gets in free (and everyone else's admission is only $5) to this fun, Wichita aviation sponsored event!
8.) The Foodie Dad: Brunch (Various Locations)
Restaurants across the state offer special Father's Day brunch specials -- check with your dad's favorite for more information.
9.) The All-American Dad: Royals vs. Red Sox (Kansas City)
Okay, so this is technically in KC, MO, BUT you should still treat dad to America's favorite past time at Kauffman Stadium.
10.) The Music Loving Dad: Bluegrass at the Lake (Marion)
A night of toe-tapping tunes await you and dad at the lake. (Don't forget to pack your bug spray!)
