Some of these free events are actually on Saturday, so Dad can sleep in on Sunday while you make him a delicious breakfast. (Check out my recipe for Fathers Day Sausage Gravy.)
Before we get to the events this year – since there’s bound to be fewer events than most years – let’s do a local Fathers Day gift guide. We found some very cool, very local, and fairly inexpensive options that your dad is sure to love.
Local Father’s Day Gift Guide:
- Let’s face it, the ultimate gift for Dad is a gift card. This year get Dad a gift card to his favorite local place like, Taco Pronto (You can pay $40 for a $50 gift card at Taco Pronto), Augustino Brewing Company, Milkfloat, Reverie Coffee Roasters, and many more!
- The Wings of the Wind kite and toy store inside Paramount Marketplace has fun for kids of all ages – including dads. Their build kits and cool gizmos are fascinating. (Plus, you’ll have fun doing your Fathers Day shopping there. Say hi to Mark and Susan for us!)
- This year two driving ranges in Wichita are offering a deal on golf balls and beer! This $20 deal on Beers and Balls sounds like the perfect Father’s Day activity to me!
- Tell Dad just how sweet he is with a gift from a local sweet shop in Wichita!
- Do all Dads love popcorn as much as mine does? Seriously, I want to know. Check out The Popcorner in Wichita to gift your dad with some specialty popcorn!
- Each Dad is unique, much like the sodas at Rocket Fizz! Whether you want to give dad a specialty soda that’s out of this world (martian soda) or bless him with a glass bottled coke, Rocket Fizz has many drinks (and candies) to choose from.
- Does your dad remind you of a rootin’ tootin’ cowboy? This might just be the deal for you. Cowtown is offering $10 off their memberships in the month of June only! A family membership to Cowtown Museum includes free admission for the whole family, and gets you in FREE to nearly all of their specialty events. Check out how to get this deal for dad here!
- If your dad prefers planes over covered wagons, make sure you take advantage of the Kansas Aviation Museum’s FLASH SALE on family memberships. It’s only $25 for two parents and all the kids for one whole year. Plus KAM has planned some members-only days for June.
- Gift Dad the green this year! Purchase a gift card to Golf Wichita courses. He can use it for a green fee and cart rental or grab a bite to eat in the concession area, he could swing into the pro shop to scope out the hats, the choice is Dad’s.
And because it’s one of my favorite videos of all time and I’ll find any excuse to share it – here’s the Dad Life:
Ahaha! The dad rolling up to the splash park in his mini van. 🙂
