With Father’s Day just around the corner (literally), plan a day with Dad to show him just how much you appreciate him! Here are some last-minute made in White Rock ideas to get you started:

Go for a Walk
Walking the promenade and the pier is a great way to hang out with Dad, with beautiful views, a refreshing breeze and an ice cream cone, it is one of the best ways to spend your day. And Father’s Day is a great day to try your hand at crabbing off the end of the pier! Just be sure to get your Tidal Waters License and read up on the rules!

Pack a Picnic
Head uptown and spend the morning exploring the White Rock Farmers’ Market! Pick up everything you need for the perfect picnic and then head to the beach, or find a grassy spot in one of White Rock’s parks and spend the afternoon relaxing with Dad playing bocce or frisbee. 

Give the Gift of Beer
Gift your craft beer-loving dad the gift of a “craft brewery crawl”. White Rock’s local craft breweries and public houses, White Rock Beach Beer Company, 3 Dogs Brewing, Galaxie Public House and The Beer Shack, are literally a 3-minute walk apart, with Galaxie Brewhouse just down the hill at the beach … perfect brewery crawl distance! Pick up a growler and a gift card. And each spot has an awesome collection of branded goods like pint glasses, beer koozies, toques, T-shirts and keychains. 

Shop Local
Does Dad love local and unique? White Rock is a fabulous place to score the perfect Dad’s day gift! Let the lovely people at White Rock’s locally-owned shops and boutiques help you pick something for Dad that he will love.

White Rock Comedy & Buskers Festival
Celebrate early and spend Saturday, June 15 in White Rock enjoying the White Rock Comedy & Buskers Festivals. All day watch for free street busking performances featuring circus acts, musicians and amazing magicians as they perform at various outdoor venues around White Rock’s Uptown and Five Corners districts. Buskers will include Bayne Bradshaw, a Highland Piper; bassist Colin Sankey, Annie Qi, a young Xiang Sihua (Guzheng player);  singer, guitarist, humorist, and Surrey-local, Duncan Minnett (who creates musical magic with his loop-pedal performance techniques);  jessaii, a roots reggae/r&b Vancouver-based singer who will wow audiences with her powerful vocals; and many more.

Brunch isn’t just for Mother’s Day … Dad’s like brunch as well, and White Rock’s restaurants have got brunch figured out! From stuffed french toast, classic eggs benedicts and the best “basic” bacon and eggs you’ll ever taste, to acai bowls loaded with fresh fruit and the ultimate avocado toast, White Rock has a brunch restaurant to satisfy every Dad’s cravings!
