Ways to Celebrate Father’s Day

06/13/2019

Father’s Day is coming. Ever wondered how it came to be? Here’s an interesting trivia about how a Civil War veteran’s daughter inspired the holiday throughout the country.

It started in Spokane, Washington after its founder, Sonora Smart Dodd, took the initiative to honor her father and his comrades during the Civil War. Since then, it has become a national holiday for every family.

Celebrated every third Sunday of June, this year’s Father’s Day is set on June 16. If you’re planning to prepare something memorable for your dad or husband, here are some options for you to choose from.

Go to the movies

Check out the latest blockbuster hit in movie theaters within your area! He might want to catch new releases this season. Whether it’s an action, sci-fi or an adventure flick, films bring people and families together from all walks of life.

Dash to the amusement park

Remember that time when your dad first brought you to an amusement park? Relive it and check out the new rides! From roller coaster rides to drop towers and Ferris wheels, there’s gotta be more rides there to keep your hearts pumpin’. Invite your dad. Let him spend time with his precious grandkids.

Plan outdoor adventures

When was the last time you were outdoors? Whether it’s a camping weekend by the Sammamish lake or a hike on a mountain trail, you get to breathe fresh air, stretch your legs, and spend quality time with your family. If you’re planning to revisit nature, prepare the necessary things to bring – tents, fishing rods, and camping gears to keep you on track. Watching scenic views is best done with your loved ones.
