Always look on the bright side of life. We do, and so do the creators of Dadfest, a morning-long dad party celebrating dudes with spawn. Dadfest features a kids' 50-yard dash, a 5K run and something called the "diaper dash," which sounds more like what Grandpa does after a big dinner at Denny's than a Saturday morning dad-plus-baby combo race. But those Dadfest folk are all about seeing the positives—except, we hope, when it comes to the on-site free prostate cancer screenings. Nothing says party like a van full of dudes with their pants down. Actually, wait, that's pretty much what happened on every episode of Jackass. So party on, Dad. Dadfest is this Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. at Frisco’s Pizza Hut Park, located at the corner of Main Street and the Dallas North Tollway. Tickets are $10 to $35. Register for races at dadfest.com.
Sat., June 16, 8-10 a.m.
