Houston Festival Season has officially bloomed

Houston Childrens Festival 2015 6With spring officially in bloom in Houston it is now time to get up, get out and do something!!  Between a really hot summer in 2014 and a constantly flip flopping winter in 2015 it feels like a steady spring is a long time coming.  Few cities can do spring better either as with temperatures in the low 80’s it is a great time to be outside.  The end of March leading up to April is a time where along with the weather, festivals flourish in Houston.  Festivals offer a great opportunity to stretch your legs, get a great breath of fresh air and discover the surprises that are around every corner in our great city of Houston.

From sausage on a stick to roasted corn to the coveted funnel cake festivals offer something for everyone in the family and a great day to spend time enjoying the weather and each other.   Likewise the Bayou City Art Festival gets you moving and engaging the family in what is art to them.  Developing this perspective early not only gets the dialogue started it helps to start expand their vision for how art reflects life in their own experiences.
