13 best Labor Day weekend events to kick back in Houston
Hard to believe, but September is here, which means the start of more holidays like Labor Day. For some, it means a chance to fire up the grill and chill. For others, it means a quick road trip.
For those staying in town, the weekend offers a host of events (more here), a chance to catch first-run movies in the theater for only $3, or an opportunity to add a furry friend to the family. Other events include a colorful (literally) party, a slabfest, a foamy fest, soaring fun at the flight museum, water sliding at Bobcat Teddy's, and a pool party at Clé.
Relax, kick back, and stay cool; here are your best bets for Labor Day.
