Things to Do in Houston This Weekend: Dia de los Muertos, Stargazing at Discovery Green

Like any respectable adult, you're probably currently in a candy-induced coma... and how could you not be? It's practically in the parent job description that all Halloween candy must be sampled before any kids can consume it, right? Parental responsibilities are tough sometimes! Which is why we're going to make planning out your upcoming weekend extra easy by providing you with all of the best events and activities around town!

Candy aside, the conclusion of Halloween also means that it's November... and that means that the holiday season is officially about to take off! However, before the holiday hustle and bustle sets in, there's still time to take advantage of some of our favorite fall festivities. Froberg's Farm, Dewberry Farms, and P-6 Farms are all keeping their fall fun happening through the first part of November so you can snag the perfect pumpkin patch pictures and take part in fall favorites like corn mazes and hayrides for a little bit longer.

This weekend also celebrates Dia de los Muertos, and there are a ton of awesome events planned around the city. MECA, the National Museum of Funeral History, Magnolia Park, The Heights, and the East End are just a handful of placing hosting Dia de los Muertos events where you can honor loved ones who have passed on and partake in other cultural traditions and activities. We recommend checking out our event calendar for a full line-up. This time of year is packed with events, and we're working hard to make sure our calendar is saturated with all of the best!
