June marks the month when we celebrate dad – and southeast Michigan knows how to do it right. Father's Day is June 15, but throughout the month, families can find all sorts of fun events and activities to enjoy with pops. Stop by a festival or two, enjoy brunch, marvel at antique cars and cool airplanes or spend time fishing. It's up to you how you tell dad just how much you appreciate him. With so many options, it'd be hard to go wrong!
