Let’s give Fathers’ Day all the hype it deserves! Take time this weekend to honor the dads, fathers and the father figures in your life. Ditch the ugly necktie found stacked on to displays in chain department stores and check out All Tied Up for something with a bit more class and elegance. The dapper dad will be glad you did.

As a pre-lude to all the Father’s Day festivities, on Saturday, June 16th, take in the 14th Annual Rum & Reggae Festival at the Wall Street Plaza, 25 Wall Street, Orlando from 5:00 – 9:00 pm. You and dad can enjoy unlimited sampling of more than 20 varieties of rum drinks from 5 – 8:00pm. This event has been touted as the largest rum party of the year with tickets at $20.00 online and $25.00 on the day of the event. Dad will think this party got started just for him!

Take Dad to Leu Gardens, from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm, on Sunday, June 17th where he will enjoy free admission and a leisurely stroll through the beautiful 50-acre gardens. Don’t miss Florida’s largest rose garden in full bloom during the entire month of June.

Join the 5th Annual Cliff Avril Family Foundation Family Fun Day – Father’s Day Edition at Paul C. Armstrong Park on Sunday from 1:00 – 5:00 pm.
