FUNomenal Family Festival

Saturday, May 26, 1-5 pm

The Academy Sports + Outdoors FUNomenal Family Festival returns on Saturday, May 26 from 1-5pm. There will be family fun with rides, games, activities and more. Headliners Born in a Taxi of Australia presents the Curious Game, a chess game that comes to life with pomp, ceremony and silly characters. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding, and advisory body.

In addition, there will be special appearances by some of your favorite characters and kids can have a blast in one of three Foam Parties thanks to Lone Star Parties and Houston Party Rental, roll around in hamster balls and more! Houston Party Rental will also bring exciting rides for the kids such as a Dual Zip-line, Ferris Wheel, Airborne Adventure, Wrecking Ball Ride, Bungee Trampoline and many more. *Rides are subject to change.

(I don’t usually suggest memberships but this one will get you in early which means fewer crowds and I can high-five to that all day!)
Forever Green members will have exclusive early bird access to Funomenal from 11am to 1pm. Click here for more information about how to become a member.

Children’s Garden Grand Opening at Mercer Botanic Garden

Children and families are invited to the Grand Opening of the Children’s Garden at Mercer Botanic Gardens! Join us to celebrate National Get Outdoors Day with fun activities and learning experiences for the whole family.

This area was designed with our littlest gardeners in mind to help connect children to plants through hands-on learning opportunities. This garden includes sensory plants, a “plant zoo”, and even fun water play!

Children thrive in a natural environment and we want to make sure they feel welcome outdoors. This is a safe space where children and families can explore and learn to love nature together!
