Things To Do with Kids in New Jersey on Father's Day Weekend, June 15-16, 2019

Dad is the VIP on this mid-June weekend. While Father's Day falls on Sunday, the whole weekend is filled with family-friendly—and especially dad-friendly—festivities. If Dad likes rides and games, spend the weekend at the Tri-County Fair, or score free-for-fathers admission on Sunday at Casino Pier and Morey's Piers. For a slower, more scenic ride, hop on Whippany Railroad Museum's Father's Day Train Ride

June festival season is in full bloom this weekend. Swing by Sea Isle City's Skimmer Festival or Nutley's Annual Father's Day Street Fair, or step back in time at Cape May's Military Time Line Weekend. Plus, summer's free movie season gets a jump-start on Saturday at Highland Park Outdoor Movie Theater.
