What is Dad’s Night?

In Dads Night, Ridgewood New Jersey on March 5, 2009 at 4:01 pm

The first Dads’ Night was held in the Kenilworth School of Ridgewood New Jersey in 1944. Over the years, the tradition has been kept alive by the dads of children who attend Ridgewood’s Somerville and Hawes elementary schools. This year marks the 65th Anniversary of Dads’ Night!

Each year the dads write their own scripts and songs, play their own music, design and sew their own costumes, build their own sets, and put on a musical review for the hundreds of kids in town.

The funds that are raised are used to buy special needed “wish list” items for the schools. Everyone has a good time, and many long lasting friendships are made. Most importantly, our children learn that their dads are committed to them and their lives. Why else would the dads make such fools of themselves if it weren’t for the love of their children!

This year’s show is the 65th Anniversary of Dads’ Night.

  1. that sounds nice.

  2. Nobody should have to watch these guys perform….write checks instead…

  3. Write the checks and go…it’s fun for all.

  4. I’d rather eat worms than sit through Dad’s night ever again.

  5. Curmudgeon!

  6. 12:54 & 3:53 doesn't have what it takes to make it in Dads Night

  7. It is a great social activity for the Dads – and the kids love it!

  8. 11:09 – read my post carefully. I said I’d rather eat worms than SIT through a Dad’s night ever again. That likely means I’m someone’s WIFE you moron-in-a-dress. Did you think your wife actually enjoys endless stupidity that only you guys (and 8 year olds) laugh at?

    Your right, I don’t havve what it takes to be in Dad’s night – – a penis!

    $150,000 for “Rat Island”

    The real problem with Scott is that he didn’t add…

    $14,000,000 for Aquatic Complex to the list

  10. It is a lot of fun. I have sat in the audience for years. It is not off Broadway but it is fun and original. If you did not want to go you should have stayed home. The place is packed and no one would have missed you.

    Dad’s Night is great because they sponsor the best parties, family barbeques, and family softball and football games. And, secondly, they raise a lot of money for Somerville, Hawes and BF.

  11. sounds like 4:48 has penis envy…sad

  12. Good times, good friends.

  13. I always thought Senor Greco enjoyed wearing a dress just a little too much…
