Battle of the Pops: A Porch Competition for Dear Old Dad

Not applicable

Dads in the New York area got a jumpstart on Father’s Day festivities yesterday as we invited them out to the Southwest Porch at Bryant Park for some friendly competition.  We asked these proud papas to put their “Dad” skills to the test in the “Father’s Day Relay.”  The obstacle course, which included some nail-hammering and tie-tying (among other things), challenged Dads at an assortment of activities right in the middle of Manhattan!  First-place-finishers won gift cards courtesy of SkyMall, and one lucky winner walked away with roundtrip tickets on Southwest Airlines!


The Southwest Porch also provided a great venue for these Dads to relax in the sunshine while watching coverage of the U.S. Open or practicing their own golf game at our putting green.  This fun event was just our way to show some appreciation to Dads out there for all the wonderful things they do.

Dads Challenge

A big “Thank You” to all those that joined us and on this day dedicated to Dads. Southwest wishes you Pops out there a very happy day!
