Sunday is Father’s Day. Better yet, the summer solstice is occurring in Lake County at 11:38 a.m. on June 21.
There are many ways you can show your dad how much you love them: a homemade card, a piece of his favorite pie from one of the farmer’s markets, plan a golf outing or watch the pros do it by scoring him some tickets to the BMW Championship September 14-20 at Conway Farms Golf Course in Golf.
However, if you’re looking for something to do on Sunday, Lake County has so much in store for you and daddy dearest. Take a look at your Lake County Guide to Father’s Day.
