Dad dates

Get your dad jokes ready — Father’s Day falls on Sunday, June 16. Whether “Dad” is the one who raised you, or the one who let you grow up in a galaxy far, far away before revealing his true identity, he could use a little extra love.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to become a Jedi to move your father’s heart. We’ve rounded up nine Father’s Day activities in Kansas City that should do the job.
