Sunday is Father's Day. Here are a few ideas aimed at honoring and entertaining the paternal figure in your life:
• Take Dad to a car show. You'll find Father's Day car shows in Burien (discoverburien.com) and Bothell (www.countryvillagebothell.com), plus the Fenders on Front Street show in Issaquah (FendersonFrontStreet.com).
• Get some beer in his belly. A highly popular local Father's Day tradition is the Washington Brewers Festival at St. Edward State Park in Kenmore. More than 200 craft beers, plus music, food and activities. More info: www.washingtonbeer.com.
• In the "whatever floats his boat" department, outfit Dad in his non-marking shoes and steer him to the Bell Street Pier Classic Rendezvous, with more than 45 classic wooden boats on display, some open for boarding. Take sunglasses in event of highly gleaming varnish. See www.classicyacht.org.
• If he prefers altitude over sea level, the Olympic Air Show features copters, classic warbirds, a modern jet trainer and more, at Olympic Flight Museum in Olympia. See www.olympicflightmuseum.com/airshow.php.
• Some dads like history, some dads are fascinated by war games, and the Battle of Port Gamble, a Civil War re-enactment, combines them in a quaint, New England-style town on the Kitsap Peninsula. See www.wcwa.net/events/portgamble/index.htm.
• Dad rides the train free with a paying child on Sunday, aboard the historic Snoqualmie Valley Railroad (trainmuseum.org). For details on this and more events for Dad, see "Father's Day Events" in our Weekend Calendar.
