My Dad's 75th birthday is coming up, what I was thinking of was having a surprise party with his friends, and then have another party with just family. We have a large family, any ideas?

Well I was going to recommend something and then found some other things to consider. So here goes:
Depending on the birth date you can find out what things happened on his birthday through out the years and work from there. scopesys.com
I was looking for special things that happened during the teen years (I figured 1947 to 1954 give or take a year) http://www.ask.com/web?qsrc=2417ando=0andl=dirandq=Important+events+of+1947+to+1954. Possibly that would give you an idea to focus on. Then there is always finding what happened specifically during the first year of birth and focus on that.
Personally I would make a list of important dates in his life and do an amateur "This is your life"".
Birthday, younger siblings birthdays, graduation HS, graduation college, wedding, birthdays for children, major job changes, serious moving dates, birthdates, wedding dates of children, birthdays of grandchildren, best friends, favorite cars, etc.
Slide show, models, music that reminds him of those time periods. Be creative. (11/27/2009)
I'm not sure what state you live in, but I contacted local, state and federal officials: mayors, representatives, senators, presidents, past and present, to send birthday wishes to my Mom. (01/02/2010)
