Disclosure: The FTC says that now I need to tell y’all up front. I’m getting a 10 pack of passes to the festival. That’s it. I will still spend lots and lots of money while I’m there I’m sure. Plus it benefits a great cause. So totally worth it.
I’m always looking for something fun to do with the kids. Make it educational, fun, and outdoors (during the spring), and I will do my best to have them there. Enter the Houston Children’s Festival.
The Houston Children’s Festival is the largest of its kind in the United States and has been ranked as one of the world’s 300 unmissable events by Frommer’s Travel Guide. This year is the festival’s 25th anniversary, and is being held on April 6th and 7th.
The festival is designed into “family adventure zones”, and will feature entertainment such as Victoria Justice, Laura Marano (Austin and Ally), Dora, and Sid the Science Kid. Tickets are $10 at the gate or $8 online, and there are discounts for the advance purchase of group tickets.
The Houston Children’s Festival is sponsored by Baker Hughes, and proceeds benefit Child Advocates. Child Advocates recruits, trains and supports volunteers assigned by a family court judge to the cases of foster children. Child Advocates’ volunteers contact caseworkers, interview parents, ensure necessary medical care, look out for educational interests and make recommendations in court regarding the permanent placement of the child. Most importantly, they serve as a “constant” person for that child to count on during a very tumultuous time.
If you are looking for something fun to do with your kids, join me downtown at the Houston Children’s Festival.
