Things To Do In Houston Today, And This Weekend, With Kids! November 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 2019

You can find the full list of events, brought to us by Magical Winter Lights, below!

Head to Discovery Green for Frostival! There will be ice carving, ice skating and the opening of the new art installation!

Have a Real Snow Day at the Children’s Museum of Houston. It should be there all day in the courtyard!

Take the family to The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Main Street Theater at MATCH. The Herdman kids are the most horrible children imaginable. They are disrespectful, they lie, they even smoke cigars. When they show up at church one Sunday and decide to participate in the annual Christmas pageant, everyone is worried. But when the Herdmans collide with the Pageant, the true spirit of Christmas is revealed!

Enjoy the lights at Magical Winter Lights, Zoo Lights, Galaxy Lights or Sugar Land Holiday Lights!

And there is so much more to do! See the FULL list of events, brought to us by Magical Winter Lights, below.
