It’s Father’s Day weekend!  What a great way to show Dad just how much he means to you by taking him to some awesome events around Western New York!

Tonight, jump into the car and take Dad to Marilla for the Fire Company Carnival. I grew up going to this carnival, and I have to say, it is one of my favorites! There’s something for everyone in the family at this one! Spend the evening riding the carnival rides, playing family-friendly games and chowing down on some great chicken dinners. Dad’s especially going to love this one because they have an awesome beer tent with live entertainment tonight!

Another amazing festival that Dad will definitely want to check out is the Juneteenth Festival happening today and tomorrow. This festival is the third-largest festival of its kind in the country! Come and spend the day enjoying a fun-filled weekend for the whole family!

Finally, one of my favorite places I enjoy taking my Dad to is the Hidden Valley Animal Adventure in Varysburg. If you haven’t checked this one out yet, definitely make this a must for your summer. Why? Well, this place allows you to get up close and personal with animals you’ll never have the chance to be close to like zebras! Yes, you read that right!  Hidden Valley has these Sunset Safari Tours where they will give you a cup of food and let you even feed a zebra! See why I like it so much?

Tomorrow for Father’s Day is extra special too. They will be holding a Father’s Day Cookout and Car Cruise all day. I checked out their website for the menu for the cookout, and I have so say, it looks delicious!  They have pulled pork, hamburgers and even bison burgers.  Yum!

Make sure you check out the Jacktivities Calendar for more incredible events happening around WNY!
