Father's Day is coming up soon, and Austin is the perfect place to celebrate Dad's special day. Whether Dad prefers sports or spending time in the outdoors, there's something fun to do in the Austin area that the whole family can enjoy. Get ideas for a memorable Father's Day below:

Austin Symphony Concert in the Park- Relax in Zilker Park with a special Father's Day concert presented by the Austin Symphony. Tap your toes to familiar marches and other melodies. The concert starts at 7:30 pm, so bring a blanket and a picnic dinner to enjoy music under the stars.

Round Rock Express Game- Fathers and their kids are invited to bring their balls and gloves for a special game of catch on the Dell Diamond field. The event will be held from 5:45 pm - 6:15 pm. Be sure to stick around afterward for the game as the Round Rock Express take on Iowa.

Alamo Drafthouse Special Showings- Spend a special movie night with Dad at the Alamo Drafthouse. Enjoy delicious food and drinks while watching classic action favorites like Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Be sure to reserve your tickets early for the showings at the Slaughter Lane, Lakeline, and South Lamar locations.

Blue Starlite Urban Drive-In- Watch classic films from the comfort of Dad's car at the Blue Starlite Drive-In. Catch both the new and original Tron films Saturday night, or drive up for Caddyshack on Sunday. Be sure to buy tickets early to guarantee a spot for your car!

Father's Day Car Show- If Dad is a fan of cars, the special Father's Day car show in Central Austin is a must see. Held at the corner of 51st Street and North Lamar Boulevard, visitors can browse all sorts of cars, including antique automobiles. Over 400 cars were on display in 2014, and this year's show could be even bigger!

Top GolfWhether Dad is an expert or novice, Top Golf is the perfect golfing game for all levels. The whole family can enjoy drinks, food, and specialty golf games from any of the three floors of this unique driving range. Bring your own clubs, or use the provided equipment. The Austin location at the Domain will open early at 8 am on Sunday just for Father's Day.

Austin Swimming Holes- For fathers that love the outdoors, cooling off at one of the swimming holes around Austin may be the perfect way to spend Sunday afternoon. Barton Springs Pool is a local favorite, or take a family trip out to Hamilton Pool in Dripping Springs. Check out our blog post listing the best places to swim in the Austin area.

Satellite Bistro Father's Day Contest- Prove your Dad is the best in the world by entering him in the "World's Greatest Dad" contest at Satellite Bistro. The restaurant will feature live music and a special menu just for Father's Day. Other Austin restaurants, including Freda's Seafood Grille and Fleming's Steakhouse, are also offering special Father's Day menus.

These are just a few events Dad may enjoy this Father's Day weekend in Austin. Weekends are also a great time to search for Austin area homes for sale. If you have any questions about buying or selling homes in the Austin area, contact us today!
