Families can celebrate dad's special day at one of the many festivals happening this weekend, including a family-friendly Craft Beverage Festival at Twin Star Orchards, a Battle of the Bands in Peekskill, and a Summer Kickoff Festival in Yonkers, where families can take kayaks and paddleboards out on the Hudson.
