fathers dayDads sure have done a lot for us over the years. They’re always been there to help us with car trouble, take care of the lawn, kill bugs in the house, and, most importantly, to provide a great pillow to sleep on. They work hard, don’t ask for much, and are usually a good sport about doing the dishes. For all these reasons and many more, they deserve to have a great time this Father’s Day weekend!

If you’re not sure how to treat the special Dad in your life this year, we’re helping you out with a quick list of some awesome Father’s Day events in Orange County that are simply too good to miss!

Cruisin’ Brea Classic Car Show

This year’s classic car show produced by Flying Deuces will feature hundreds of unique automobiles, and is sure to be their largest event ever! Bring the entire family and treat your Dad to a world class car show with some of Southern California’s hottest vehicles! Dad will love checking out all the classic muscle cars, trucks, and exotics, and everyone will love the free general admission and live music.

Downtown Brea also features dozens of restaurants, shops, and a nearby Edwards Theaters to entertain everyone for the whole day!

Chili at the Beach in Huntington

If your Dad is in the mood to soak up some sun and fresh ocean air this Saturday, June 18th, take him over to the 9th Annual Chili at the Beach event in downtown Huntington Beach! This tasty competition offers guests free admission and unlimited chili and salsa tasting tickets for just $10 if you purchase online, $15 at the event.
