This Weekend in Houston: November 8-11, 2018

Happy Weekend, Houston – November 8-11, 2018!

Let’s focus on what is going on this weekend in Houston, November 15-18, 2018! Because, this weather…ugh, amiright?!

How has it already snowed and frozen?!  My poor plants, did you get yours covered in time?  I moved one and covered none. We are moving into the land of survival of the fittest out there.  Good news, no more imminent freezes because it was chilly at Zoo Lights when we went on opening night.  If you are heading out to begin your holiday events this weekend your weather should be a wee bit more manageable.

If you are not ready to move into holiday mode (even though the lights are up and Christmas music is piping through sound systems across the city) there are still some Fall Events worth checking out. But, if you are ready there are also tons of Winter Events and Holiday Markets rolling out!

 Looking for more awesome adventures? Take a gander at the complete GHM Calendar or check out some of the ongoing weekly events Toddlers & Preschoolers. Don’t forget holiday camps for the kiddos we have a list of places offering Thanksgiving Camps and Winter Camps.

Have a great weekend!
