An estimated 10,000 Houstonians helped get the fall performing arts season off to a roaring start at the 23rd Annual TransCanada Theater District Open House. They filled several large downtown venues to experience live performances, meet ballerinas and musicians, and take insider backstage tours while outside, a bevy of food trucks offered up a diverse array of culinary delights.

The free annual event also offered discounts on a large variety of shows and activities that will take place in the coming months at five downtown Theater District venues —  The Alley Theatre, Hobby Center, Jones Hall, Wortham Center and Revention Music Center.

But for many kids, the most fun was getting up-close and personal with the performing artists.
