10 Fun Spring Events for Houston Families

spring-eventsHouston has an abundance of events and activities for families throughout the year. One of the greatest times of year to get out of the house and do something fun is when spring is in the air. Shake off what’s left of the winter doldrums with these ten awesome Houston events.

  1. Lemonade Day, Houston

    Who doesn’t love lemonade? Lemonade Day is an annual event that began in 2007 and takes place in the spring. On this day, kids learn how to start and run a lemonade stand. It is more than a day of fun selling lemonade. The children learn the importance of strategy and how to effectively run a business. That way, during the hot days of summer, if your child wants to host a lemonade stand on your lawn, you know he will be able to run it with a new level of independence.

  2. Kid’s Comedy and Magic Show

    This event at the Houston Improv has endless entertainment sure to wow your family. From comedians to magicians, your child will laugh and be amazed at this show made just for families looking for good, clean fun. The acts are geared toward children of all ages and can impress even the most stubborn child.

  3. Texas Festival at Horseshoe Park

    In true festival fashion, the Texas Festival has everything from delicious barbeque to live entertainment and games for all to enjoy. It also has a little something extra, with activities like bungee jumping, hot air balloon rides, archery and more. You and your family can easily spend the day at Horseshoe Park and not even come close to participating in everything that’s available.

  4. Bayou Bend at the Museum of Fine Arts

    Not only will you and your family learn about American history here, but you will also see artifacts from the early days of this country. After looking at the displays, head outside for a walk along the grounds through the lush springtime gardens. Whether inside or outside, you will be impressed by the grandeur of the Bayou Bend.

  5. LEGO Kids Fest at Reliant Center

    LEGO Kids Fest is a three-day extravaganza. These days are filled with several chances for individuals to build for fun or for families to compete with each other.

  6. Houston Celtic Festival and Highland Games at the Houston Farm and Ranch Club
