Things to do with Dear ole’ Dad…

Ah today is not only Sunday, but Father’s Day as well.  I’m sure many of you including myself ran out and bought your father, husband’s or even brother’s a Father’s Day card to celebrate a day which honors all of the things they do for us throughout the year. 

But is a piece of cardboard or cardstock paper really enough for all the things they do, especially since being a dad is a 24-hour job.  So, here’s a list of things to do with your papa (these suggestions are only good if you live on Florida’s Space Coast


What could be more fun than enjoying free music in the park with dad!? Bluegrass in Malabar  is from 3 to 6 p.m. Sundays at Trailhead Park, 1490 Marie St. Bring your lawn chairs. The performance site is next to the old Malabar School….

Walk through the stiles of the Cocoa Beach Farmer’s Market hand in hand with dad and peruse fresh baked goods, gourmet breads, farm fresh produce, jams and jellies, and other special treats. The Cocoa Beach farmer’s market is held from 9a.m. – 3:00 p.m. in downtown Cocoa Beach, 2 South Orlando Avenue….

 Is dad on a holistic vibe?  Well then head out to Body Mind Spirit Expo, a weekend long expo centering on natural health and personal growth. The expo is being held at the Melbourne Civic Auditiorium, 11a.m.-5p.m. Sunday….

What man doesn’t love his car? I’m sure yours does so why not head over to Suntree United Methodist Church where they are hosting a Father’s Day Antique Car Show from 1 to 4 p.m. at Suntree United Methodist Church, 7400 N. Wickham Road. The set-up time and registration is 12:30 p.m. Prizes will be awarded. Drinks and food will be available….

 Speaking of food is your father a gourmand?  If he is he might like the fare being served up at EuroLatin Market today.  Located at 3345 N Courtenay Pkwy, Suite 107, the EuroLatin Market is hosting a special Father’s Day Gourmet Dinner with seating at 2:00 pm, 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm today.  Cost is $20 per person and dinner will include: french onion soup with gruyère cheese, assortment of meats (roasted pork, prosciutto, lomo –cured pork loin, soppressata, spanish chorizo, sausages) served with risotto and warm bread, and topped off with a cannoli….

Dad not feeling fine wine and gourmet fare?  Is he more the bar-b-que type?  Or does he like sand and surf?  Well the  Crowne Plaza Melbourne Beach Oceanfront, 2605 North Highway A1A, Indialantic, has all of that this weekend because they are hosting  a special Father’s Day Beach Barbeque, which starts at 4:00 p.m.
