Houston Holiday Festivities Around Town
It’s our favorite time of year and we’ve compiled a list of fun family activities to celebrate the season! From light festivals, train rides, ice skating, visits from Santa and holiday entertainment, there is something for every age.
Houston Zoo Lights is one of our favorite things to do during the holidays! Don’t get discouraged by the long line, it moves fast! Buy your tickets in advance online. November 23 – January 12, 5:30-10:30pm, last entry is at 9:30pm.
Discovery Green Ice Rink is fun for all ages! November 15 – Saturday February 2. Check their website for special hours and closures. Ticket sales support Discovery Green Conservancy, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that depends on the generosity of park visitors and other friends to maintain the park and to fund the more than 600+ free events held here every year.
We first visited the Christmas Village at Bayou Bend last year and we were blown away! This is a great adventure for kids or a date night! Be sure to book your tickets in advance! December 12th – 30th.
