Free Things to Do with Houston Kids in October

Houston, fall is technically here. There is a ton happening around the city in October, including many free events for the family. Most fall festivals and pumpkin patches around Houston are free, and don't forget to check out our guide to free Halloween events or see what organization near you is hosting a fun trunk-or-treat (yes, also free). 

This month enjoy free concerts at Market Street, story hour at McGovern Centennial Gardens, and so much more - check our calendar every day for things to do around Houston with your kids. And for more free fun year-round, see our Guide to Free Events & Activities for Houston Families.
