What’s up for Father’s Day?

0604dad.gifIt’s almost Father’s Day. Are you prepared? There are a few directions malls are taking their Father’s Day celebrations this year.

1. Sports: South African shopping center Killarney Mall is giving Dad a chance to the big rugby match between the Springboks and the Lions. The shopping center is also giving away a unique panoramic shot of the 2007 Rugby World Cup. A number of shopping centers are putting together similar prizes, with signed team memorabilia, tickets to events, and other sporty treats.

2. Fashion: Or shall we say a little gentle humiliation? Culver Square Shopping Centre has Fashion Police out on the hunt for dressed-down dads who need a lift. The UK mall will give he worst-dressed dad a full makeover. Similarly, some malls are giving away pampering packages the likes of which you’d usually only see on Mother’s Day, with spa treatments, hair styling and clothes.

3. Family fun: Windward Mall is hosting a great party for Dad and kids. The Celebrate Fathers event is put on by the Hawai’i Coalition for Dads, a group of organizations dedicated to offering  information and services to father-figures to promote involved, nurturing and responsible fatherhood. The events include a Father-Child look-a-like contest, and a Kahalu’u Elementary School Ukulele Band concert.

Has your mall planned something original or exciting for Dad this year? Let us know in the comments.

    Hi there,
    At the Harvey Centre, in Harlow UK, we have been searching for an adventurous Dad to crown this year’s ‘Daring Dad’. He will win great prizes including the opportunity of a lifetime to feed the Big Cats at Paradise Wildlife Park, the only wildlife park in Europe where he could do this.

    Entrants need to tell us what makes their Dad the most Daring one they know – perhaps he has eaten stinging nettles, skydived, bungee jumped for charity or perhaps they would like to see him have a go at breaking concrete blocks with his elbow or eating strange and exotic insects as the Daring Dad for 2008 did in a series of challenges at the Centre last week!

    There is more information on the news section of our website, or you could contact me if you would like to know more.

    Many thanks,
