Father's Day is just around the corner. If you need an idea to give that special someone the day that he deserves, we've got a list of 7 things you and your dad can do this Father's Day in Western New York.


Buffalo Wings vs Rochester Plates

It's a local delicacy that makes both Buffalo and Rochester unique. And on Father's Day, it'll be the last time you get to see the Bisons play as the 'Buffalo Wings' Sunday at Coca-Cola Field. They'll take on the 'Rochester Plates' at 1:05 p.m.




Lewiston GardenFest

If your dad has a green thumb, he may want to check out the Lewiston GardenFest. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday and will take place on Center Street.


Buffalo River Fest Park Festival

Why not spend some time down by the water in this year's annual Buffalo River Fest Park Festival. There'll be live entertainment, food and more. If you can't make it Sunday, no worries. The event also takes place just off of Ohio Street and Michigan Avenue on both Friday and Saturday. 


Father's Day Grand Lady Cruises

You and your dad can celebrate Father's Day taking a tour of Buffalo's waterfront on a boat. Prices and times vary. For more information, click here.


Father's Day Weekend at Darien Lake

Beer, classic cars and coasters...what's not to love at Darien Lake Saturday and Sunday. You get in for free if you have a Darien Lake pass. 


Father's Day Train Ride

Enjoy some time on the rails in Attica. Father's ride the train for free. Otherwise, tickets are $19. The train ride lasts a little more than two hours. 


The Strawberry Extravaganza

You and the family can enjoy live music, a petting zoo, tractors, cars and more up in Gasport at The Strawberry Extravaganza. The event starts at 9 a.m. on Becker Farms. 


Bonus Round!

Great suggestion by Bob! If you love classic cars and Buffalo history, the Buffalo Transportation Pierce Arrow Museum may be the place to be Sunday.
