These events are for Houston TX…but Parents Connect shows Family Friendly Events for most major cities!
This Weekend’s Biggest Event:
Wings Over Houston Air Show (without giving too much info on my whereabouts…we can see this from our backyard! They’ve been practicing all day!)
The 26th annual airshow features the US Air Force Thunderbirds, vintage World War II planes, aerobatic pilots, military aircraft, jet fighters, an explosive re-enactment of the attack on Pearl Harbor, a kids’ area, and more.
Tickets for reserved seats are $40-$125. Special family ticket packs also available. Shuttles are available from area parking lots; visit the website for cost and locations.
***The festivities are awesome, but I have little ones and their ears are too sensitive. So we watch the blue angels from a field right behind Ellington Field! For Free!
Activities include a pet costume contest, seminars, demonstrations, a pet psychic, music, pet adoption opportunities and information, diving shows starring the Heart of Texas Dock Dogs, and more.
Located in the heart of Old Town Spring.
