LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - THV 11 found dads out celebrating Father's Day all over Central Arkansas Sunday.

Joe Campbell spent the day on the golf course and said he appreciates having a day dedicated to dads.

"I like it when my wife and my daughter say 'Dad, go out with your brother and the other guys in the family and play and have it be your day'," said Campbell. "I really appreciate them doing that. It's a lot of fun."

Father's Day also marked the one day each year that Wildwood Park opens Swan Lake to the public for catch and release fishing. Allen Peterson came out to fish the lake with his son.

"I've just had not too much time but now that I'm retired I've got plenty and as you can see I'm now hooked on it," said Peterson as he tended his fishing line. "This is a great opportunity to come out with my son and show him how much I care."
