Things to do in Houston today and this weekend, with kids! July 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 2013

Summer is in full swing and there is a lot to do in Houston!

Miller Outdoor Theatre has kicked off the Children’s Hilltop Festival and it lasts through Friday.  While you are in Hermann Park, you can stop by Pinewood Cafe to build your own grilled cheese and enter the cheesy contest.  Also in the park, you will find the Houston Zoo open late for Friday Cools Nights.  And it will be snowing there on Saturday morning.

In this same part of town, you can visit many museums for free on every Thursday and several of them are free this Saturday for the Museum Experience.

On Saturday you will also find the Houston Family Magazine’s Free Fun Fest at Discovery Green along with the Writing Workshop, Kayaking, Concert and more.

If you are looking for fewer crowds but just as much fun, try the Summer Fun Squad at Cherryhurst Park with free bounce house and ice cream on Saturday.  Brazos Bookstore also has their storytime on Saturday and the big Where’s Waldo Party on Wednesday!

If you have not seen it already, get tickets to Alice in Wonderland at Main Street Theater.  After this weekend, it’s gone for good!

And finally, be sure your calendars are marked for 2 upcoming BigKidSmallCity meet ups!  On Monday, July 29, we will be meeting at the Keggs Candy Factory for a tour.  On Tuesday, July 30, we will meet at Fire Station 16 for a tour.

Still not sure of what do do?  See the full list below or check out this list of free things to do in Houston!
