Several area activities are available for local dads to enjoy with their families for fathers day celebrations.Local Dad Luke Raymond says he celebrated the special day yesterday and today with his family. Raymond says yesterday the family enjoyed a breakfast and spent the morning at the Farmers market, and today plans to go fishing and have a family get-together.
Raymond says his favorite memory of a past father’s day was his first one with his daughter and the tradition of fishing with his dad.
“I think the first one, when you have a little baby, it’s your first father’s day, and it’s just definitely a really cool experience having the first one,” says Raymond. “Then, of course, with my own dad, we kind of have a tradition of going fishing early Sunday morning on Father’s Day weekend, which is kind of cool.”
Raymond says he is experiencing his ideal fathers day, spending it with family.
“Hanging out with my daughter and my own dad, just having some good time together,” says Raymond.
Other area dads have said they have similar plans of spending the day with their families and doing activities like golfing or swimming.
Some area organizations and businesses will have special events for dads to take advantage of on their day, like Dad’s Day at Lakeside Splashzone Water Park. All fathers get free admission from noon until 7 p.m. with at least one child.
