Every Sunday, Macaroni KID Carlsbad-Encinitas-Solana Beach shares our picks for five things to do with your kids in San Diego County over the coming week. 

In honor of Father's Day being next Sunday, here are five things you can do with Dad and the kids in this upcoming week. Click on the links for all the details!

1. U-Pick Strawberries at the Carlsbad Strawberry Company

Spend some time with Dad outside and pick your own strawberries at the Carlsbad Strawberry Company! Open for a limited time every year, this is one of Carlsbad's biggest attractions. $10 gets you into the gorgeous fields, and $15 gets you entrance plus as many strawberries as you can fit into a bucket. Bounce houses for the kids, food and drink for Dad. Petting zoo for the whole family. All week, June 9 - 16th

2. A Fresh Dinner for Dad

Going out is overrated. If you're looking to make a nice meal for your family this weekend, stop by one of the local street fairs to pick up some fresh foods or even a gift for Dad. Check out the Carlsbad or Encinitas farmer's market on Wednesday and Sunday, respectively. Wedneday, June 12th, and Saturday, June 15th

3. Avian Adventure Day at the Agua Hedionda Lagoon

Another outdoor adventure where you can take the whole family to meet some friendly birds of prey. A little birdie tells me that Fathers may be allowed to hold one of the birds... Sunday, June 16th

4. Beach Fest 2024 

This is a once a year, FREE concert slash surf contest slash beach day rolled up into one event! Grammy award winning band SWITCHFOOT will be headlining, and a few pro surfers have been known to attend. This is not an event to miss; bring the whole family! Saturday, June 15th

5. Father's Day at Coastline Church

Father's Day is on Sunday - so if you're looking for a fun church service to attend, Coastline Church is going to have food and games all day this Father's Day. Attractions include a mechanical bull and obstacle course. Sunday, June 16th
