Believe it or not, it's already the middle of June, summer is just about here, and it's time to celebrate dear old Dad. Thankfully, this weekend's event calendar is jam-packed with great ideas for dads, whether they're music lovers, Harry Potter fans, or outdoorsy types.

Take Dad to a concert and rock out to oldies but goodies. Explore the Philadelphia Museum of Arts which features a Harry Potter-themed scavenger hunt or get free admission for Dad to see the dinosaurs at the Academy of Natural Science. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy participating in a special nature scavenger hunt at Norristown Farm Park, camping out at Riverbend Environmental Education Center or fishing at Green Lane Park. For a real treat, splurge on a helicopter ride at the American Helicopter Museum, take a Father's Day cruise, or ride down the shore for some free fun for Dad at Jenkinson's.

Other weekend excitement includes Germantown's Juneteenth Festival, Winterthur's annual Enchanted Summer Day, Ross Mill Farm's Piggypalooza, or the Islamic Heritage Festival which is part of PECO's Multicultural Series held at Penn's Landing.

No matter how you spend your weekend, Mommy Poppins Philadelphia wishes a very Happy Father's Day to all the guys out there who make a difference in the life of a child!
