St. Charles County, Missouri – Father’s Day is fast approaching and what better way to honor dad than with a momentous Father’s Day Grill Out from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Saturday, June 20 at The Historic Daniel Boone Home in Defiance. There are two lunch sessions to choose from: 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and 1 to 2:30 p.m.

Upon arrival, participants will be issued a specific lunch time and will have the option to eat under The Grand Pavilion or on their own picnic blanket in the scenic park. A pre-packaged pulled pork sandwich and frosty root beer float top the menu. During each session, various frontier demonstrations, such as woodworking and black powder will take place throughout the historic village grounds. Everyone goes home with a souvenir glass mug and will receive a coupon for a half-price tour of the Boone Home for their next visit. The Historic Daniel Boone Home is located at 1868 Highway F in the Missouri Historic Wine Country and is on the National Register of Historic Places listings in St. Charles County, Missouri.
