Happy Father's Day! Looking for Something Special to Do with Dad?

Fathers are our heroes, not only do they wear several hats in the household...chauffeur, bbq griller, cook, shopper, but they can also do fun things with the kids, like go on the rollercoaster rides, be a sports buddy, mini golf partner, and sight see tour guide, while most likely working that full time job. Father’s Day gives us a chance to express our love and appreciation to the Dad in our lives. Here are some things to do for Father's Day 2019 in and around New Jersey. Check out our NJ Kids Calendar for more events.
