Happy Father’s Day weekend! I firmly believe that yes every man can be a father but it takes a special person to really be a dad to someone. I can honestly say that my dad is my hero. Treat your dad’s the best weekend ever! Here are some activities that will definitely score you brownie points with your dad!

This weekend at the Niagara Wine Trail USA take Dad out to experience their Wine and Cheese event.  The event runs today from noon until 6pm.  You’ll get the chance to celebrate with Dad while you check out some of his favorite wines and cheese!  It’s even National Dairy Month so the Wine Trail is pulling out all of the stops for Dad and serving up the best of the best!  Tickets for this weekend include a wine tasting and cheese pairing at each winery and a commemorative wine glass at your starting winery.  It’s Wine and Cheese at the Niagara Wine Trail USA!

This weekend at Our Lady of Sacred Heart in Orchard Park is their 5th Annual Parish Lawn Fete.  Tonight the festivities run until Midnight and tomorrow they kick off at noon and go throughout the day till everyone’s had plenty of fun!  Join them for live music by Boys of Summer and Black Widow.  Two amazing bands that Dad is going to LOVE!  Along with that you can treat Dad to a great meal!  There is a fish fry, Polish Dinners, and a Chicken BBQ to choose from.  Tomorrow make sure you take Dad to the Motorcycle and Car Show.  You’ll get to wander through the cars and listen to your Dad talk about the cars he had when he was a kid.  That’s definitely my favorite part.  Besides all of that fun they even have rides you can take the family on and of course a Homemade Pie Bake Off Contest.  It’s the 5th Annual Parish Lawn Fete at Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Church on Abbot road in Orchard Park.

Another great activity to check out this weekend is Dad’s Dollar Day at the Zoo.  Seriously if you’re a poor college student but you want to show Dad how much he means to you then this is the event to head to!  Dad gets into the Buffalo Zoo for just $1!  Together you can wander through the zoo and explore the different animal families at the Zoo.  Seriously it doesn’t matter how young or old you are the Buffalo Zoo is a great adventure for the entire family!  The Buffalo Zoo’s Dad’s Dollar Day runs tomorrow from 10am to 4pm.

Then again if your Dad isn’t into wine but LOVES trains then this will be a big hit with him.  Tomorrow at the Medina Railroad Museum is their Father’s Day Train Ride.  There are trains leaving the station at 11am and 2pm today.  You’ll get to relax with your Dad and the family today on a two hour train ride through the Erie Canal corridor from Medina to Lockport and then back.  Along with that your admission will also include admission to the largest railroad and toy train museum.  Dads who love trains will love this event!

Finally if your Dad is the outdoors type like my Dad you’ll want to check out this event!  Tomorrow at the Tifft Nature Preserve from 2pm to 4p they will be holding the Tifft History Tour.  Spend the day at Tifft learning all about the interesting history of Tifft and how is plays a major role in Buffalo’s past.  You’ll get to spend the afternoon learning how the layout of the preserve has been affected over the years and find some secret spots where you can still see remnants of its history.  Along with all of that you’ll get the chance to marvel at nature’s ability to reclaim the land and use old maps and photos to imagine the original layout of the preserve.  So take your Dad outdoors for some fresh air and history at the Tifft Nature Preserve tomorrow from 2pm to 4pm.
