Calling all bad-ass dads! It’s time to rumble down the highways of Illinois and Wisconsin during the Ultimate Alternative Father's Day leg of Emerica’s Wild Ride.

For two days, fathers, sons and everyone else will ride their hogs, skate and camp with the Emerica team. The action kicks off on Saturday, June 17 at 1:00 p.m. at Springfield Skatepark in Springfield, Illinois. There’s never been a Father’s Day celebration quite like this, so be there…or be Mr. Rogers.

Meet at 1:00 p.m. at Springfield Skatepark 5751 Bunker Hill Road, Springfield, Illinois 62704. Kids will get a chance to meet and skate with the Emerica team. From there, the group will hit the open road to a second skatepark, Big Creek Park, in Canton, Illinois, approximately 90 miles away. Big Creek Park 940 N. Main Street, Canton, Illinois 61561. Arrival time at Big Creek will be approximately 5:00 p.m.

On Sunday morning, you can continue to Milwaukee with the rest of the Wild Ride, or if you came from the Southern part of the state, you can enjoy an afternoon ride home.
