Ready for a little fun in the sun? This weekend we recommend heading down to the Island and hitting the beach because Galveston has some awesome family-friendly events on tap. Get in on some sandcastle building action (and learn tips from the experts!) on Saturday at Stewart Beach, then head to Moody Gardens for some country rock by Shotgun Road at Bands on the Sand. Then Sunday during the day compete in a good, old-fashioned beach challenge, with life-size versions of bean bags, Connect Four, and more, all for a chance to win a $500 gift card! Plus, no weekend is complete without a little Sunday night fireworks over the Gulf or a moonlit showing of Up at Pleasure Pier.
In case you missed it on Mommy Poppins, these articles also offer up some fun vacation and staycation activities:
