Father’s Day is Sunday, June 16th, and the National Retail Federation estimates that more than 15 billion dollars will be spent on the holiday. And for a lot of us, Dad’s are hard to shop for. But don’t settle for a necktie just yet. Cape offers plenty of opportunities for Father’s Day gifts for him to enjoy.
Treat Dad to dinner at a unique local restaurant. We have everything from thick juicy steaks to Missouri’s best barbecue. Or enjoy each other’s company hiking along a secluded park trail or catching bass and catfish in a local lake. For the sports-loving father, Cape is home to world-renowned golf courses.
Or if you’re looking for a great place where Dad can relax and make memories with his family, Tunes at Twilight is perfect. It’s an intimate community gathering around a gazebo, listening to music and reveling in a summer night. And there are plenty of statues and fountains to explore on the Ivers Square grounds. After tunes take a stroll to the river front. The music kicks off at 7 p.m. on Friday, June 14th at the gazebo in Ivers Square.
To enjoy more family togetherness, visit the Southeast River Campus from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 15th for the Summer Arts Festival. This event celebrates creativity in many forms – visual arts, music, dance, theater. Plus there are hands-on, activities where the youngest to the oldest may create a masterpiece, like chalk drawing along the Avenue of Art.
