Father's Day Events

Chances are you owe your dad quite a bit. Not only is he responsible for half of your DNA but he also probably taught you a thing or two along the way. Time for you to show your appreciation on Father’s Day; we have some suggestions for customizing the day for Dad: - For the music-loving dad, FAU is hosting a free Old Time Concert in the Park starting at 6 p.m. The Florida All-College Band — made up of students from across the state — will be performing covers of big-band songs. The concert is being held at 6 p.m. at Mizner Park Amphitheatre, 327 Plaza Real in Boca Raton. Call 561-297-3854. - For the historian father, Bonnet House Museum and Gardens is offering dads the chance to step back in time to Florida in the ’20s and ’30s. The museum is offering free admission for dads with the purchase of one ticket. It’s located at 900 N. Birch Road in Fort Lauderdale.
