Fun For Fathers Day Weekend

Father's Day is this Sunday. If you're like me, you are probably still racking your brain about what to get dear old dad. You don't "that person" who goes for the old standby's that fuel many an corny joke or anything of the sort. There's also the dilemma of figuring out what he may want. I don't know how many times I've tried to find hints of what he like but most of the time he pretty much says "I have everything in the world I need." The solution? Why not take pops out and spend some time with him this weekend. The Blue Water Area has a few things going on that might be right up his alley.

Does pops like to turn the music up loud when there's some classic rock playing? The Lexington Village Theatre has a couple things happening that will get him to say "Turn It Up" this weekend.

Since he began in the business in the 1960s Carl Palmer has sold over 50 million records! He is considered a drummer's drummer. His dynamic style behind the kit has been thrilling audiences for five decades in bands such as Emerson, Lake & Palmer and Asia. 


Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy is a tribute to the prog-rock supergroup that brought him his biggest claims to fame. Between 1970 and 1978 Emerson, Lake & Palmer landed five albums in the US Top 20 charts. Carl and his band will play songs from those record on Friday evening at 8:30.

Delivering a live performance the showcases signature four part harmonies and intricate musical interludes, seeing Almost Queen put on one of the most authentic Queen live shows since the actual band itself. They'll be at the theater for two shows, 7pm and 9:30pm, on Saturday night.

Purchase tickets for Carl Palmer and Almost Queen at the Lexington Village Theatre box office.

Lexington doesn't just have things to do with dad on Father's Day weekend just in the evening. You can take him on a trip back to time by pulling up to the Lakeside A&W on the village's main street and having the car hops come up, take your order and bring it back to your window. They weather looks great for the weekend so the old man and you can even enjoy a frosty mug of famous root beer on the restaurant's patio.

After grabbing a bite to eat this Saturday afternoon the Lexington A&W this Saturday take a stroll with pops out back of the place and check our the Antique Tractor Show going on from 10am-5pm. Equipment from the early days of agricultural machinery all the way up to modern times will be on display throughout the grounds.

While out with dad in Lexington this weekend why not sit and talk over a sip at the Lexington Brewing Company and Wine House. Their newly remolded building is rustic yet cozy place to try one of their handcrafted beers and award winning wines.

When you're young your dad is bigger than life. And what should a bigger than life fellow have? A big truck, right?

This Saturday there will plenty of big rig on display for the big man at the 4th Annual Harbor Beach Truck Show. From the super semi's that ply the highways to the trusty work horses that run the back roads, trucks of all shapes and sizes with buffed and shined to show off. Who knows, maybe you can even talk someone into letting your dad up in the cap so he can blow the horn.

Happy Father's Day!
