Patch Picks for Father's Day

Let Dad set the agenda for Father's Day weekend.

Make your Father's Day celebration a necktie-free zone this year. Honor your favorite guy(s) with time to play at one of these hot spots.

Canoe at the Chicago Botanic Garden

See the garden from a different angle when you canoe the Chicago River on Father's Day. An aquatic biologist will cruise with you to explain what you’re seeing and what the Chicago Botanic Garden is doing to restore the area. Best of all: no canoe experience is necessary. Find more information and register in advance online.

Car Show at the Glen

Stroll Tower Drive through Town Center for a view of the cars you and Dad always wished you owned. Admission is free Sunday, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. The show will feature a wide array of classic and vintage model cars, with up to 50 cars on display. A live DJ will provide music throughout the day.

Dairy Breakfast at Wagner Farm
