Dads across the metro-area do a lot each week to keep their families and Atlanta homes up and running. So, this Father’s Day it’s time to do something special and celebrate dad! Don’t worry if you haven’t decided on what to do because Atlanta has you covered with a weekend jam-packed full of family-friendly events perfect for each and every dad.
For animal-loving dads, Zoo Atlanta has the event for you with Father’s Day After Dark on June 16. Take your kids and make memories that you will remember forever by spending the night in the zoo. You’ll enjoy a nocturnal adventure focused on the many regions of Georgia including the mountains, ridges and valleys and coastal plains.
If you are looking for more indoor education fun with your young children, then head on over to The Children’s Museum of Atlanta for their Father’s Day Celebration 2012 on June 16 and 17. This event, for children 8 and under, has story times, crafts and fun. Children can even make their dads bookmarks to give as their own Father’s Day gift.
We also know of the perfect event for families who have a passion for art. Wired and Fired, a potter playhouse, is having a day just for dads. Make his day special by having your kids create one-of-a-kind masterpieces that could even feature your children’s hand or foot prints. All dads who come in with their children on Father’s Day can paint for no studio fee.
Sports and athletic dads will love a perfect Father’s Day at the Atlanta Braves game at Turner Field. There is a game on Saturday, June 16 at 7:15 p.m. and on Sunday, June 17 at 1:35 p.m. Come out and enjoy a day of bonding and creating memories with your dad.
Though, one of the best ways to spend Father’s Day is with an end-of-the-night cookout in your very own backyard. Fire up the grill and treat your dad to a fabulous meal to show him how much you care.
