Local experiences, gift ideas for a memorable Father’s Day


HARLINGEN, Texas (KVEO) – Father’s Day is this Sunday, June, 20. If you are still thinking about how to celebrate the fathers in your life, here are some locally sourced activities and gift ideas to make it a memorable year.

As we have all noticed, these past few days have been some of the hottest days of the year so far. Sunday’s weather is expected to look no different with a high of 96 degrees.

If you’re hoping to spend some time with your dad and stay away from the heat, here are a few places you can do that, and some you can go to later in the day when it’s less hot.

Kickin Axes RGV

1017 Shasta Ave, McAllen, TX 78504

Ever watched your dad throw an ax? Now’s the opportunity. You still have time to make your reservation at Kickin Axes RGV before Father’s Day. Walk-ins are also welcome and you can also get your dad a gift certificate. Kickin Axes will be open from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday.

Creasey’s Bowling

When’s the last time your dad went bowling? Maybe he would enjoy the opportunity to show off those skills or look goofy trying. Creasey’s Bowling will be open from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday. Happy hour bowling rates until 6 p.m., and the glow lights are on all day!
