What better way can you think of to express your love and gratitude for the father or father figure in your life than a heaping plate of fresh crab? At the 2019 Fayetteville Father’s Day Crab Feast, you can get that very thing and share an experience that your dad will not soon forget.
The 2nd Annual Fayetteville Father’s Day Crab Feast emanates from the John D. Fuller, Sr. Recreational/Athletic Complex on June 15. The cost of admission is $32 for adults and $10 for children, and the return on investment is quite significant — you’ll be able to get all the fresh blue crab you can eat as well as a side of fish and chips. Pair that with the lively, festive atmosphere and plenty of chances to reminisce about days gone by, and you’ve got a recipe for a memorable Father’s Day.
You’ll have your choice of two times if you want to attend the Fayetteville Father’s Day Crab Feast: noon or 4 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in advance at EventBrite. Once you’ve bought the tickets, all you need to bring is your dad and your appetites — and maybe a bib.
If you really want to drive home how much your dad means to you this Father’s Day, why not get him a new Honda? Bring him into Bryan Honda and we’ll help him drive away in the car, truck, or SUV of his dreams.
Part of car ownership is taking care of your vehicle. There are a few things that should be done at the beginning of each season. The following are some spring car maintenance tips that will help you keep your car running as smoothly as possible as the weather warms up.
Spring clean, inside
and out. Give your car a good scrub down both in and out. Throw away any
trash you’ve gathered over the past cold months, vacuum, and wipe down the
inside. On the outside, make sure you wash and wax every inch — including the

Warmer weather can cause the air in your tires to expand. This, along with an
abundance of potholes popping up as the weather gets warmer, can really do a
number on your tires. Check your tires’ pressure and tread. If their pressure
is outside of the manufacturer’s range – which can be found in your owner’s
manual — then fill or deflate your tires accordingly. Also, if the tread on
your tires are balding, make sure you get your tires replaced.

wipers have undergone a lot of pressure. Now that the weather’s warmer — and
getting rainier by the day — you should switch out your wipers for new ones. This
will make sure your visibility as you drive is the best it can be.
Remember routine maintenance.
Every few thousand miles, you should be getting your oil changed. If you put
this off during the cold weather of winter, now is the time to get your car’s
oil changed. It will keep your car running smoothly throughout the warmer
For the greatest peace of mind, you should leave spring maintenance to us. Schedule a service appointment at Bryan Honda and we’ll ensure your car gets the care it deserves.
Spring is finally here, which means it’s time to start thinking about where you can go to enjoy this season’s beautiful weather. At Bryan Honda, we would like to recommend heading over to Lake Rim Park, a lovely local park with a range of activities to enjoy.
Gather some friends and meet up at Lake Rim Park to enjoy some fun in the
beautiful spring weather. The park has a range of sport fields and courts,
ranging from tennis and sand volleyball courts to soccer and baseball fields. Whether
you’re playing a game of pickup or want to practice your penalty shot, this

beauty to enjoy. Set out on one of its numerous walking trails, including the
one-mile border trail that goes through the wetlands. There is even a fresh
water marsh area that is home to a range of local flora and fauna, so keep an
eye out as you walk.

more. You can even attend a game in one of the six luxury suites or four field
boxes to give you a premium baseball experience.
