Pleasant weather and sunny skies brought Lincoln families outside for Father's Day.

Some people, like Roger Wilson and his daughter Angie, hit the greens. Golf has been a father-daughter tradition for them for years.

"We played the junior golf course quite a bit when she was growing up and slowly graduated to the bigger courses," Roger said.

Angie says her father is the whole reason she started playing.

"He means the world to me," she said.

At St. Mark's Church near 84th and Pioneers, car enthusiasts checked out more than 100 vintage vehicles.

"It's a beautiful day and a chance to get out with my boys and do some of the things I used to do with my dad," Mike Masur of Lincoln said.

St. Mark's has hosted the Father's Day car show for 10 years now.

"It's great, yeah, it's nice that people can get out and enjoy these and take a look at the old muscle cars from year's past," Tom Oliver of Lincoln said.

Many families took Dad to the Lincoln Children's Zoo, where fathers got in for free until 5 p.m. Antonio Diaz went with his wife and two young kids. He says the zoo is a great place to spend Father's Day with the children.

"Let them kinda get with nature and see the animals and be outside," Diaz said.

From peacocks to penguins, there was plenty to see. Both dads and kids seemed to be having a great time.
