February is when Houston takes a deep breath to recover from New Year’s Events and prepare for Spring Break and Rodeo.  Although the events list is a little smaller than it has been, there is still plenty of fun to be had in our city!

On Saturday, celebrate the Year of the Horse at the Chinese New Year Festival in Bellaire!  There will be performances, dragon dances and lots of activities for kids.  The event is free to attend and tickets can be purchased for the games.

Also on Saturday, Hermann Park members can ride the train all day for free.  Family memberships are $50 per year and include many perks, including free train rides each month.

If you are up for a little drive to Galveston, visit Texas Marine Mammal Stranding Network for a free family event called Dolphin Days.  This real dolphin rescue facility will open up on Saturday and teach families about mammal rehabilitation and research!

On Sunday, take a Walk on the Wild Side at the Nature Discovery Center.  Be sure to also check out their classes and storytime during the week!
