All year long, the father’s work hard for their families to help provide for them and help them grow. One day a year we are given the opportunity to tell them thank you and focus on just dads 100%. What better way to thank your dad for all that he does than a vacation getaway to New Melones Lake Marina? We can’t think of one either. Along with our normal day to day opportunities for watercraft rentals and lodging, we have planned a special Father’s Day Weekend celebration.
Father’s Day Weekend
For the weekend of June 14th thru the 16th of 2019, New Melones Lake Marina has planned a very exciting time to help celebrate dads. Three world-class wake surfers from Hyperlite will be at the lake to give free lessons! There will also be sport boat demo’s going all weekend to show off our fun boats. Don’t forget to hop over and rent a sport boat to take for a spin yourself. Once you see it in action, you won’t want to miss out. Along with these adrenaline filled activities, there will be plenty of food and live music for the whole weekend. This fun-filled family event is a perfect way to show your dad how much you love and care for him.
