My father is one of a kind. I am beyond blessed to have an aging father who continues to have his health, humour and humility. He is retired but his strong work ethic continues to amaze me every day. Like most fathers, he never asks for anything. He is humble and grateful for the love of his family, grandchildren and friends. The River District is a place he grew up. There are so many unique shops, local art, restaurants and entertainment. Taking time to spend a day (or two) together in our community would be delightful and meaningful for both of us. This generous gift would not only convey appreciation, but it would recognize the dedication and commitment of being a father for over 50 years. My father truly deserves to take some time away to enjoy everything the River District has to offer!

The perfect Father’s Day afternoon in the River District would include the whole family my Dad my son Brady and dog domino. We would take a nice walk around and stop for a delicious lunch at one of the restaurants outside patios if we still have doms with us lol. Taking time to stop and look in the stores downtown while we are walking. After lunch we would go and find some ice cream for everyone to enjoy .

The perfect Father’s Day in the River District would be spending the day with my husband and our two girls. Our daughters have been blessed with an amazing Dad who works so hard, loves to hang out with family and loves to have fun. We would start our day with some smoothies from Sprout; lunch at our favourite spot, Yummy Yummy; a walk downtown; and a special date night on the beautiful patio at Sizzlin. 

We’re a young and growing family that moved here last summer, and we absolutely love what is going on at The River District! It would we amazing to win this contest and be able to surprise my amazing husband and father two our two beautiful girls.

  This Fathers Day our Family will be spending the whole day at the river bank with dad! The girls just love every moment spent at the river with dad. Catching and watching all different animals. After long day spent we will hit the good Ol Ted n Graces up for some ice cream.
