Attending the Awe-Inspiring Houston Art Car Parade

When I moved to Houston, I noticed something different about the cars I saw on the road in my neck of the woods. While driving around the Heights I remember seeing one car painted with colorful cat faces and another covered in Day of the Dead figurines. When I finally learned these cars were associated with the Houston Art Car Museum and annual Art Car Parade, I knew I (and my family) needed to see more. We now try to go to the parade every year, and it never disappoints. 

Houston's Fall & Winter Family Fun Runs

Look no further than this list of family fun runs happening throughout the Houston area over the next few months. Whether you're a seasoned runner, weekend warrior, stroller strider, or someone who just wants to get outdoors and do something different with the family, there's a race on this list for you. 

Weekend Fun for CT Kids: Faeries, Apples, and Halloween Events, October 1-2

I know that we need the rain, but with so much outdoor fun scheduled for this weekend in Connecticut—from country fairs to family festivals to pirate invasions—I hope the gray days called for in the latest forecast are wrong. You won't want to miss the opening weekends of the Apple Harvest Festival in Southington or Wee Faerie Village in Old Lyme, which are great fun for adults and kids alike. You also have until Friday to enter our contest to win a family four pack to the perpetually crowd pleasing corn maze at Lyman Orchard by clicking here

If, like me, you're already negotiating costumes and candy selections for Halloween, you can set the spooky mood with some haunted activities running the gamut from mildly scary to slightly adventurous to totally terrifying.

We will do our best to keep up with weather cancelations in our frequently updated event calendar, but if the weather is at all questionable, be sure to contact venues directly before heading out for any scheduled outdoor activities. Make sure that you subscribe to our weekly newsletters and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest so that you won't miss any of the Halloween fun!
