Looking for the best things to do in Los Angeles this Father's Day weekend? Here are some events and activities to add to your list for this first weekend of June.

Settle down, padre; we get it. It’s Father's Day. This weekend it’s all about you. Dad’s choice from sunup to sundown: make way for baseball, BBQ, car shows, a surfing celebration, and even a yachting regatta —of the cardboard variety. Or, if you prefer, rescued seals and a pickle palooza. As long as you're happy, we're happy: we love you to infinity and beyond. Just like Buzz Lightyear, premiering at the El Capitan this weekend.

If you still want more fabulous Father's Day ideas, we've rounded up all the best things to do in Los Angeles with dads this weekend. And a few dad jokes, to keep the mood silly and fun. Enjoy the weekend!
