Bethel Church Holds 'Dad Fest'

"For a rainy day this was an excellent turn out. Excellent,” Danny Hoesli said.

Sunday at Evansville’s Bethel Church, it was dads, dads and more dads, which could be expected for and event called Dad Fest.

But what makes a dad, besides the obvious?

"Just be responsible, and be there for your family at all times, no matter what ups and downs you have. Family's number one,” Troy Sanners said.

"I think the most important part about being a dad was the fact that you've taught them right and wrong,” Hoesli said.

For some, it's as simple as making time after work.

"But he always found time when he came home to change clothes and go out and catch baseball with me,” Jay Stockman said.

Being a good dad is a solid formula for making a good dad, but that's not always how it goes down.

“Like I might not have had a dad around for me, but my mother was always there. So from that learning process, I will always be around for my kids. So for all you dads out there that haven't been around, or always have been around, remember dad is one of the biggest part of a kid’s lives, and they need you,” Sanners said.

Spending the day with their families is enough for a lot of dads, but just in case, cars, sports, and of course food are easy ways into dad’s hearts, which was all available at Dad Fest. That's what Father's Day and Dad Fest is all about.

"Just being a dad and teaching them about life. They've grown up so well and so excellent, it's just, that's what awesome about it,” Hoesli said.
