Things to Do in Houston This Weekend: Texas Renaissance Festival, Pecan Harvest Festival

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, which means it's time to finalize all those holidays plans! If you find yourself in a last-minute panic over how to feed incoming guests, we feel your pain and to ease that panic have rounded up a list of restaurants open on Thanksgiving Day ready to serve you and your family and friends. For those interested in giving back this holiday season, we've also found different holiday volunteering opportunities around the city. Giving back to the community is the perfect way to help those in need and reinforce how much we have to be thankful for this season.

For those looking to get a jump start on the Christmas festivities, we highly recommend checking out the different places offering photos with Santa, dining on breakfast, brunch, and more with the big guy, and attending one (or more!) of the many craft fairs and markets happening around town. 

Find yourself in need of some family-friendly activities to fill up the upcoming weeks and weekends? Check out our fall bucket listevent calendar, Free in November list, and November GoList for tons of family events and activities. You can also subscribe to our free weekly newsletter to make sure you're always in the loop with everything happening around Houston.
