So far the long term forecast for Father's day is sunny skies! I've put together a list of some last minute ideas to celebrate the day with dear old Dad!

If Dad is a Ferrari fan, take him for a  ride-along in a Ferrari, driven by a Festival volunteer. Two ticket levels are available:

“Tifosi” Ticket: $75/person – You choose the specific model of Ferrari which you would like to ride in (subject to availability)
“Amici” Ticket: $50/person – Take a ride in the next Ferrari available to take passengers

Or just let him admire the collection on display. 

There's also a Father's day luncheon at 11:30 at Villa Marconi. 

Treat Dad to a delightful and delicious Father’s Day at the Canadian Museum of Nature.
