Y'all, it's officially midway through September, and despite temperatures that are still steadily climbing into the 90+ range every day, that means fall (well, Houston's version of fall) is here. It's time to start planning weekends around our fall bucket list, hitting up all the family-friendly fall festivals and snapping photos at the different pumpkin patches around the city, even if it means we're sweating through our flannel while we're doing it. 

This weekend also marks the annual celebration of Mexico's fight for independence, and in true Houston style, we're celebrating it big with events like the 50th Annual Fiestas Patrias Parade, a day of Fiestas Patrias activities at the Children's Museum of Houston, and a Fiestas Patrias celebration at Trader's Village

In case you haven't quite filled up your daily calendar yet, our event calendar and our September GoList are stocked with awesome events and activities happening in every corner of the Houston area, so you're always equipped to keep boredom at bay. We are also ready to deliver everything happening on Mommy Poppins straight to you when you sign up for our weekly newsletter, keeping you in the know with the best tips, tricks, and activities we have to offer. 

If you have an event you're planning, we would love to feature it on our calendar! All you have to do is submit your event to us for our review so we can make sure it's a good fit, and we'll get it published from there.

Now, without further ado, let's take a look at the upcoming weekend!
