Things to Do in Houston This Weekend With Kids: Polish Harvest Festival, Family Beach Challenge

Y'all, you know it's officially the fall season when we start sharing articles like where to find fall festivals, pumpkin patches, hayrides, and corn mazes. We even compiled an awesome Fall Bucket List to help make this next season a great one, and we could not be more excited about all it has to offer. The only thing that needs to happen next is for the weather to get the memo! 

This upcoming weekend is full of festival fun, with celebrations ranging from favorites like the Polish Harvest Festival for a healthy dose of culture to the extra spicy Texas Hot Sauce Festival and the ever popular kid-favorite, Blessington Farm's Pumpkin Patch and Fall Festival.  

Speaking of awesome events, make sure you also check out our event calendar, our September GoList, and our Free Things to Do in September posts; they're packed with events and activities throughout the month that your family won't want to miss. You can also sign up for our weekly newsletter to have everything we publish delivered right to you so you never miss any new content we roll out. 

For anyone planning an event, we know this is a busy, exciting time of the year and we would love for you to submit your event to our event calendar if it's not already on there so we can share it with all of our awesome readers. Just fill out the form and we'll take it from there.
