Father’s Day is just around the corner, and you’ve shown your love for your Dad via personalized golf balls, unnecessary new tools to complicate drinking beer or whiskey, the latest in fishing gear, a tie, BBQ equipment, and the list goes on. It’s a tried and true recipe to make him smile. Why not mix it up this year by Giving Dad a victorious weekend! Here’s our guide to Father’s Day in Victory Park!
If you’re a family that enjoys being active, plan your own 5k fun run. Get creative with a special medal for Dad and bestow it during a closing ceremony. Etsy has plenty of dad-approved, punny medals that can be shipped out just in time. Don’t forget that a fun run isn’t the same without the recovery beers the Katy Trail and the Trinity Strand Trail have convenient stops right at Victory Park to walk over and kick back with an ice-cold beer (A Texas summer must!). If your preference is an indoor workout, don’t count out a fun fitness class with Orangetheory or Classic Pilates!
