Coinciding with the exciting start of summer, Father’s Day in Park City offers lots of ways to treat your dad, and enjoy some time with him, too.
All Seasons Adventures is a great place to start, offering activities dad would love such as fly fishing and trap shooting. Whether or not your dad is already an avid fisherman, All Seasons can make it an enjoyable and memorable experience. They arrange the license and all the gear for half or full day trips to some of the best “blue ribbon” waters in the U.S., here in local rivers. Likewise with trap shooting, in nearby Kamas, Utah. Offering gorgeous views and instruction, safety glasses, ear plugs, shot guns and shells, trap shooting with All Seasons is a fun opportunity to learn or hone some skills (no birds are harmed with this activity).
And here’s a unique idea – Old Town Cellars’ “Swine & Wine” event on June 20. Described as an evening of a detailed hog breakdown, the event covers origin of cuts, sustainability in whole animal butchery and proper meat sourcing, and features a hog butchery demo. Enjoy charcuterie, OTC wine and cocktails while you’re at it. For more information go to Swine & Wine at O.T.C.
