5 Things to Do With Dad This Father’s Day
Father's Day is Sunday, June 20, and if the goal is to find something to do with your dad that involves getting out of the house, here are some events happening on his special day to help you celebrate with the man who taught you that beer is its own food group.
From a baseball game that coincides with the teams' Kids Day promotion, appropriately enough, to a cherry picking road trip a short drive up the road in New Mexico, these events can help make his Father's Day better than the tired dad jokes he tells, and show him why you're the least disappointing child.
Take Dad Out to the Ball Game
The Chihuahuas are back in town for a week-long home stand against the Sugar Land Skeeters that includes a Father's Day evening game. One of the ticket options available on the big guy's day is an all inclusive special that consists of a 90 minute all you can eat hot dogs and watermelon buffet. Check out availability HERE.
With triple-digit temperatures expected in El Paso over the Father's Day weekend, a road trip to a much cooler place might be just what dad doesn't know he needs. Nichols Ranch and Orchards, which is 20 minutes from Alamogordo, is hosting the 2021 Nichols Ranch Cherry Festival on Saturday and Sunday, June 19 and 20 (Father's Day). The fam can pick cherries, listen to live music, chow down at one of the food booths or food trucks, and peruse the wares of over 85 arts and crafts vendors. You'll find more details HERE.
Do the Twist
The legendary Chubby Checker is back to "Twist" again. If dad is a fan of old school rock and roll then taking him to this concert is a must. And check this out, big spender; it's a free show. Speaking Rock Entertainment is happy to host Chubby on Father's Day -- and the rock and roll legend, too. Find more event info HERE.
If he's into classic cars, the El Paso Funeral Museum is celebrating both dad and its reopening with a free, family-friendly Father's Day car show. The Hearse and Classic Car Show and Shine will feature local food trucks, vendors and entertainment, and highlight some sweet rides – as well as a few last rides, if you know what I mean and I think you do. The El Paso Young Ghost Busters will have slime activities for the kids, and Royal Calaveritas will be conducting free tours of the museum. El Paso Funeral Museum Facebook has the details.
Grill and Chill
If the big guy is going to grill on his big day anyway why not rent him a cabana at the water park so he can chill out before the grill out. With slides and attractions, a humongous wave pool and lots of shade trees, Wet 'N Wild Water World has lots of ways for dad to cool off before and after he does the manly fire and meat thing.
