Father's day in Ohio: how Dads celebrated across Lucas County

Father's take pictures a the zoo for father's day (

Toledo, Ohio (WNWO)-- Whether getting zany at the zoo enjoying or mustering on the Maumee there were many ways Northwest Ohioans celebrated Father's Day.

The Toledo zoo offered free admission, welcoming in Dads at no charge-- as long as they had a child as proof.

Fort Meigs hosted a muster on the Maumee: a historic reenactment celebration with soldiers from across 10 centuries.

"It gets you away from the screens and the games," said Martin land, a reenactment soldier at Fort Meigs. He's spent the past 22 years reenacting historic figures, a passion he's passed on to his kids and grandkids.

That sense of being present was exactly the tone at Robinson Park. The City of Toledo's Toledo Youth Commission, The Art's Commission of Greater Toledo and the Toledo Police Department assisted United Hoods Softball League for a Father's and Family Activity Day complete with food, fun and entertainment.

"You can have fun doing something positive," said Armon Grier, Co-Founder of the United Hoods SoftballLeague. "You don't have to be negative... doing drugs or drinking. You can have fun in a different way with your family."
