Things To Do in Houston this Weekend: Fall Fests, Free Bowling, Outdoor Movies, & Hispanic Heritage

A slew of rainy days has brought in the cooler temperatures that scream "fall," which makes our Fall Bucket List your new best friend. Visit farmers' markets, search for painted rocks, check out the Dragons at the Houston Zoo, and definitely start putting the local area pumpkin patches on your to-do list; they may not be quite as plentiful this year, but there are still some great ones happening! 

With cooler weather here, we think this is the perfect excuse to hop in the new RV and spend the weekend at a nearby Texas campground. If you're up for driving a little farther, we recently spent the week at Perdernales Falls State Park, and it received five stars from the family. Make sure you also peruse our Day Trips Guide for more destinations to try with the kids.

And our Back-to-School Fair is still going on; catch the last few free demo classes this week, including Atlantic Acting and Coucou French.

Read on for the best things to do this week in Houston.
