Day for Dads

LUM Day for Dads is an annual event designed to encourage and celebrate fathers who are engaged with their children and families. Seventy individuals from close to 20 families participate each year in an evening at the Lafayette Aviators baseball game at Loeb Stadium typically on Father’s Day, the third Sunday in June.

Each dad and their family members receive for free — a Day for Dads T-shirt, game ticket, food & drink vouchers, and an Aviators baseball cap. Highlights of the event are LUM appearing on the jumbotron and hearing the announcer thank the LUM Dads for “their important role in their children’s lives.“ The participating dads are grateful for the LUM Day for Dads and the chance to be with their children on Father’s Day weekend. This event began in 2020.
