July is just over the horizon, but June is throwing a heck of a last hurrah. 

In addition to the last Sunset Music Fest on Thursday and the final nights of the Heart of America Shakespeare Festival through Sunday, here’s what you can get into this weekend in Kansas City.

If you didn’t get a chance to take Dad out for Father’s Day, you’ll get another chance on Saturday. Head to Gateway Classic Cars at 9 a.m. on Wednesday. Bring the ride and the dog. You’ll be rewarded with classic cars and, while they last, donuts and coffee. For free.

Bo Jackson Royals Hall of Fame Induction
June 29

Saturday afternoon at 3:10, the Royals host the first place Cleveland Guardians. It’s a big game in a big series, but you could argue the main attraction is 55 minutes prior. That’s when Bo Jackson, the legendary dual-sport athlete played for five-plus seasons at Kauffman, will enter the Royals Hall of Fame. 

Grab tickets here, and get to your seats by 2:15.
