Dad Days event offers activities for families this weekend

June 11, 2013


Just in time for Father's Day, families can celebrate fatherhood with food, fun and free film screenings this weekend at a series of events sponsored by Dads of Douglas County, a local nonprofit promoting father involvement.

Dad Days will begin Friday at The Oread Hotel from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. with a screening of “Absent,” a documentary about fatherlessness. A panel discussion will follow.

The festivities will continue Saturday with “Party in the Park,” a free event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with live music, activities for children and food vendors in Watson Park.

Later, families can go to The Oread hotel from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Saturday to build their own pizzas. Cost is $7 to $10 per pizza, depending on size and toppings. Afterward, “Unconditional,” a movie inspired by the life of Papa Joe Bradford, founder of Elijah’s Hope Ministry, will be shown for free from 6:30 p.m. until 7:45 p.m.
