    Stumped on what to do with Dad in Chicago on Father's Day, June 16? Check out these 5 ideas for different types of dads.

     

    Fathers are often the overshadowed parent when it comes to how we honor them. But lest we forget, there are so many dads, poppas and other positive male role models that deserve recognition.

    Father’s Day is more than giving your favorite guy in your life a new tie or other gender-based gifts; it’s for showing honor to the men who have a genuine and nurturing presence in the lives of those who cherish them. Here is a list of innovative, fun and nonconforming ideas to honor all the father figures in your life on June 16.

    For the creative dad
    The annual Artists of the Wall Festival is held near the lakefront at Loyola Park in Rogers Park. Come watch amateur and professional artists decorate the 600-foot sea wall during this two-day festival, June 15 and 16. 

    For the sporty pop 
    White Sox vs New York Yankees for an afternoon of some ballpark fun! Tickets start at just $10.

    For the foodie father
    Learn the ways of Southern cooking at the Chopping Block. Children ages 6 and older are invited to help their families prepare a delicious and festive feast—including mac and cheese, fried chicken, and fruit cobbler—that Dad will drool over!

    For the nature-loving daddy 
    On Father's Day, the Shedd Aquarium will have its Family Festival, two hours of family-friendly activities that celebrate the natural world. Meet a live animal, engage in hands-on science activities and make a craft to take home. Activities are designed for families with children ages 5-12. 

    For the sun worshiping baba
    The city has officially opened its beaches, so get out and host a beach day for Dad.

    However you celebrate with that special man in your life, enjoy your time together!
