Sunday, June 19th is Dad’s Day. If you’re contemplating the “same old, same old,” of getting daddy-o a new tie, slippers, a new wallet, barbecue tools, or that must-have socket wrench set then maybe, just maybe, you should rethink your Father’s Day gift-giving strategy.
And, if you are scratching your head saying, “Gee whiz, what can we do to make sure Pops has a grand time on Father’s Day?” we here at your favorite Columbus Toyota dealer, Germain Toyota of Columbus, are here to help you out. Fortunately, we didn’t have to go too far to come up with some nifty things you can do to celebrate your dad.
We took a poll of the many dads who work here at our dealership and they gave us some ideas of what they would like to do to celebrate their special day in the sun. So we figured, “hey, if the dads on our staff like these ideas, maybe other dads will too.” Makes sense, right? Lucky for us, Columbus pulls out all the stops when it comes to celebrating Father’s Day, so there’s no lacking for lots of fun-filled events and activities throughout our area. So let’s dive in and see what’s cookin’ for dads on Father’s Day 2016 in Columbus.
