New Hampshire Family Reunions
Father’s Day is the celebration of fatherhood. The holiday began in the early 20th century. A woman named Sonora Smart Dodd, who was raised solely by her father, thought that there should be a day for dad’s to complement Mother’s Day. She celebrated the first Father’s Day on June 19,1910. By 1926 Congress formally recognized the holiday. Then in 1972, President Richard Nixon established a National Observance of the holiday for the third Saturday in June.
Thoughts of Father’s Day seem to lead to activities more than gifts. New Hampshire has many great options for an enjoyable Father’s Day Weekend.
The annual High Hopes Hot Air Balloon Festival happens in Milford, New Hampshire. This energetic celebration has different events every year that provide entertainment for a wide variety of interests.
Conway Scenic Railroad honors fathers with a special deal. Fathers ride for free on Father’s Day. When accompanied by one child, dad gets a free coach ticket. But when accompanied by another paying adult, dad gets a free first class ticket, which includes snacks!
New Hampshire also has many other fishing, sports, hiking, camping and relaxing opportunities for a great Father’s Day weekend. After all, the point of Father’s Day is to celebrate dad, so why not take him out to do something he’ll enjoy!
