Things to do in Houston today and this Veteran’s Day weekend, with kids! November 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 2013

WeLoveHoustonAnother week, another list of things to do in Houston!  Here are the events for Thursday, November 7 to Wednesday, November 13!

This weekend brings the 1st Thursday and 2nd Saturday of the month.  That means that on Thursday you can Eat, Shop and Rock on Mid-Main.  Visit the restaurants and shops on this section of Main Street, at the Ensemble/HCC METRORail stop, and a percentage of sales will help  Inprint inspire young.

This Saturday, Hermann Park Conservancy Members can ride the train, all day, for free!  Memberships are $50 a year and support a great park.  Also on Saturday, kids and parents can Run the Park in the 1K and 5K races.

All weekend long, Phoenicia Foods is celebrating their 30th anniversary and is giving out free cupcakes.  Grab one at the Downtown location (or West Houston) and head to Discovery Green next door.

At Discovery Green, participate in the Young Writer’s Workshop or one of their many other events.

This weekend also brings Neighborhood Toy Store Day at Fundamentally Toys.  It will include educational programs with exotic animals at 11:00am, balloon artists from 12:00 to 3:00 and more.  You will also find the Old Fashioned Art Fair at Foelber Pottery.  There will be hands-on fun for all ages!

It’s hard to believe, but this weekend, Home for the Holidays opens in Old Town Spring.  A visit to this old railroad town is sure to get you ready for the holidays (and inspired to take down your Halloween decorations).

If you can find a babysitter, check out “Stick ‘Em Up!” and “VIGILANTE VIGILANTE” on Saturday at Orange Show.  These films are about the artists behind street art and those that oppose them.  “Stick ‘Em Up!” is directed by Houstonian Alex Luster!

Honor our Veterans with celebrations and a parade on Monday.  The Veteran’s Day Parade and other events can be found near City Hall.
