Dad's the VIP of this mid-June weekend. Our roster is loaded with events that Dad, and the whole family, will enjoy. Head down the shore for games and amusements, with freebies for fathers at Seaside Heights' Casino Pier, Morey's Piers in Wildwood, and Jenkinson's in Point Pleasant. Bring a hungry Dad to Father's Day Brunch at Alstede Farms, a Father's Day BBQ at Grounds for Sculpture, or a Father's Day Luau at Bellview Winery. And don't miss our list of 25 ways to celebrate Dad with kids for even more ideas.

This busy weekend also features circus and carnival fun, with the Kelly Miller Circus coming to town in Little Ferry and the four-day Tri-County Fair in Rockaway.
