Give Mom and Dad Memories!

Do something special with Mom and Dad on their special day. This year, Hannibal has many events that would make the perfect gift. With everything happening during Hannibal’s Bicentennial year, the last thing you’ll want to do is get Mom some flowers or Dad a tie.

Mother’s Day Weekend

You’ll always see some amazing rides at the Loafer’s Car Show.

Sometimes the best gift you can give Mom is a day to herself. Why not take the kids downtown to see all of the awesome cars the Loafer’s Car Club has out on display on Saturday May 11th? You’ll give Mom a little free time! Even better, take the whole family downtown and let mom enjoy some retail therapy while the kids check out the cool rides. You can draw some inspiration for the car of your dreams together as a family while strolling along Main Street.

Explore the art downtown!

Does Mom love country music? Get her tickets to see country music superstar Chris Janson on Saturday May 11th! Janson is a high-energy entertainer and an ACM award-winner with tons of hits. May 11th also offers an evening of art on Main Street with the 2nd Saturday Gallery Walk. Stroll Hannibal’s art galleries with Mom, hear guest artists speak about their work, and enter to win pieces of art! Mom will remember her 2019 Mother’s Day for years to come.

Father’s Day Weekend

Meet Fredbird and stay to cheer on the home team.

With June right around the corner, it’s not too early to think about Father’s Day, and Hannibal has an entire weekend of fun. Friday, June 14th, Hannibal is celebrating one of its famous sons with one of his most famous movie roles! Bring Dad to Huckleberry Park with the kids for an outdoor showing of Disney’s Pinocchio, featuring Hannibal native Cliff Edwards, aka “Ukulele Ike” as the voice of Jiminy Cricket!

If baseball is more Dad’s style, get him to the Hannibal Hoots game early and the family can see their favorite Major League mascot. Fred Bird is flying up to Hannibal to greet fans before the Hoots game, so get there early, then stay on to cheer on the home team.

Saturday is another day to give Dad some grade-A treatment without spending a fortune. Come to Historic Downtown and check out some awesome bikes. The Lone Wolf Motorcycle Show invites motorcycle  enthusiasts to bring in their bikes and trikes and show them off downtown. The show is free for spectators and dad can dream about his next ride.

Mom and Dad will always remember their special day in Hannibal in 2019!
