Father's day is rapidly approaching, this Sunday as a matter of fact. The Weather forecast for Bismarck/Mandan is temperatures in the mid-70s with a slight chance of showers (which probably with our luck lately means we won't get a drop). So what are your plans for you and your pop? I have some ideas for you that might make this a special day for him. How about a round of golf at Hawktree (18 holes) or a quick nine at the Mandan Municipal golf course? Here is an even better option if both of you love the game but are feeling lazy - The final day of the U.S. Open is on Father's Day - an intelligent tradition - you can watch it on TV out on the patio while you are grilling up a couple of steaks (the size of a Volkswagon), smoking some big fat cigars and drinking some cold ones.

You can NEVER go wrong by visiting the Dakota Zoo! During the summer, there is always something going on for the whole family - This Sunday all fathers receive a discounted admission AND a FREE train ride. So there you go, the whole family can benefit from that while he is cruising on the tracks.

Finally, it's pretty universal that ALL dads dig cars! This event is right up his alley - From 12:30 to 3:00 Sunday afternoon, The Father's Day Car Show at the Capital Christain Center here in Bismarck. Here is an event where dad can actually show off his car, truck, or cycle - and enjoy lunch! Stayhappening has all the info you need.

I lost my father and I would give anything to have just 5 minutes together - to tell him all the things I should have said when he was alive. Seize the day and be with your dad.
