A Weekend Built for Dad! – Charlotte, NC Events – June 19th – June 25th, 2015

This weekend Spring officially ends and Summer takes its rightful place. It’s also Father’s Day and everything has aligned for the perfect set of treats for Dad. Experience the music of the Beatles, stay healthy and support the community’s youth, relax with the best cinematic themes, and finish it all off with the NBA draft.
