Father’s Day is on June 19th and Niagara Falls has you covered with activities for Dad and the whole family! Father’s Day is a celebration honoring fathers, paternal bonds and the influence of fathers in society. It’s celebrated on the third Sunday in June, and we have you covered with plenty of things to do for Dad this weekend!
Clifton Hill has it all for Dad on Father’s Day!
Has this weather inspired Dad to fire up the grill? Then we have an entire wall at the Canada Trading Company right here on Clifton Hill that has all the BBQ’ing tools that he will need. This includes every kind of sauce imaginable, from mild to suicide hot, in various flavours — check out all the displays devoted to Dad! The store also features a wide-selection of clothing apparel for men.

If Dad is more of a laid-back jokester, the Fun Factory at the bottom of Clifton Hill has plenty of Father’s Day gifts to choose from. You can also choose to do something really unique and special and combine your hand with Dad’s to make a wax replica showcasing your bond. Get your hands customized to whatever you choose…any color, anything inscribed on it, solid, hollow, one-hand or two! It’s entirely up to you.
The Fantasy Fudge Factory (also on Clifton Hill) offers everything and anything to suit his palate. Goodies galore! Including something new just in time for Father’s Day ….
Is Dad brave enough to try “Extreme Heat” Kettle Corn — plus, several other hot and spicy flavours?
