Grab your capes and masks, because all of your favorite superheroes are bringing their superpowers to Houston this weekend to fight off some of the most infamous villains in comic book history. Marvel Universe: LIVE! is flying into Houston and is definitely one of the most exciting events happening this weekend! But that's not all this weekend has to offer. If something a little more lowkey is more your speed, there are a ton of family movie nights happening all weekend long:

  • Christmas in July is happening in Tomball at 2nd Saturday at the Depot, with a special showing of  Arthur Christmas. 
  • Have an outdoor family movie night in Pearland with a screening of Coco. 
  • Want to watch Coco, but live way too far from Pearland? You're in luck, because it's showing at Creekside Park in The Woodlands as well!
  • Catch Paddington 2 by moonlight in Sugar Land
  • Close out the weekend in Galveston with a starlit showing of Finding Dory at Pleasure Pier. 

If you're itching to get out of town this weekend, we highly recommend heading over to Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels. This classic waterpark never dissapoints, and is full of both the traditional water rides you've come to expect and fun favorites that embrace the park's natural hill country surroundings. It's definitely one you want to add to your list of summer destinations! 

For even more kid-friendly events and activities throughout the month, take a look at our event calendar and our July GoList, or sign up for our weekly newsletter to have everything we post on Mommy Poppins delivered right to you. If you have an event you want publicized, we'd love to help you do it! Submit your event to our calendar and we'll add it to the site and share it with our readers.

Without further ado, let's take a look at what Houston has to offer this weekend!
