Sunday, June 18 is almost here and you still don't know what you're doing for Dad? We're here to help with a list of some of the exciting Father's Day activities happening near our Springs San Antonio luxury apartment communities.
Alamo Beer Company is rolling out the red carpet for dads with a free day-long event benefiting Pints for Prostates, an organization raising awareness about prostate cancer screenings. The June 18 event kicks off at 11 a.m. with brunch followed by a silent auction and washer tournament along with a pig roast, food trucks and live entertainment. There's a bouncy castle and big slide for kids, and leashed pets are welcome.
Dad doesn't have to be a Harley guy to attend this event, but he might be one by the time he leaves. The event begins at 11:45 a.m. on Saturday, June 17, and the first 50 dads to arrive receive a free goodie bag. There will be plenty of cold beverages to accompany the tasty fish dinner. Admission is free, but get there early while supplies last.

The family that plays together stays fit together! The New Braunfels Parks Foundation is hosting a benefit 5K run through three of the city's beautiful parks. Make an additional "splash" by taking the optional tube challenge through the chute in Prince Solms Park. The June 17 event begins with registration at 6:30 a.m. and the race begins at 8 a.m. Entry fees are $35 for adults and $10 for kids, with everyone receiving a t-shirt and a day pass to the tube chute.
The popular beer emporium is celebrating dads on June 18 with a day of special menu offerings and beer selections, highlighted by $2 pints of Karbach's delightfully named Staycation brew. At 4 p.m. there will be a raffle with prizes including fishing, BBQ and golfing gear. Doors open at 11 a.m. The Flying Saucer is family-friendly, and leashed dogs are allowed on the patio seating.
Dads deserve some pampering too, so treat him to an afternoon of stress relief at Massage Envy. He can choose from several different techniques such as Swedish or deep tissue, as well as enhanced muscle therapy for weekend warriors, and finish with a 60-minute men's facial. Purchase $125 in gift cards by June 18 and receive a free 60-minute facial or 30-minute upgrade.
