Valentine's Day, Presidents Day weekend, Mardi Gras, the Houston Rodeo...there is plenty to love about February! Don’t miss our favorite kid-friendly activities in Houston this February 2023.

Let the good times roll this February! Mardi Gras celebrations happen this month, including the Parade and Festival in Kingwood and Texas’s largest Mardi Gras celebration in Galveston. With so many choices, you are sure to find fun at a bead-filled, family-friendly party. 

Also, cheer on the cowboys riding into town at the Rodeo Parade Downtown, or try your skills at roller skating at Houston’s only outdoor roller rink, the Rink At Discovery Green

And one of the most exciting events this month is the opening of Memorial Park’s Land Bridge and Prairie. This project distinguishes Memorial Park and Houston, serving as an icon to all of a greener and more resilient future. The opening celebration includes family-friendly entertainment and Texas’ Biggest Picnic
