You AskedWhat is there to do on Thanksgiving in Houston? 

Not everyone has plans for Thanksgiving Day, and for that, Houston is a great place to be!

The Thanksgiving Parade is Downtown at 9:00am.  If possible, sit on side of the street away from the train tracks.  The side by the train tracks usually gets a lot more crowded.

Starting at 11:00am, you can go ice skating at Discovery Green.  They have double bladed skates and a toddler practice rink, so it’s fun for the whole family.


In the evening, after 6:00pm, head to Zoo Lights at the Houston Zoo.

I’m sure restaurants and some museums will be open and I will update the events list as I confirm the hours.
