With school over for most, bring the whole family down to Stewart Beach in Galveston and get your hands deep in the sand with these sandcastle building lessons. Along with making fun and creative sandcastles, attendees will get to work with instructors and professionals to learn about building the best sandcastles.
You won’t want to miss this special Black Panther event during the Children’s Museum of Houston’s “Super Powered Summer.” This kid-friendly event will feature activities including creating bookmarks featuring your favorite superhero and building a 3-D rendering of whatever your mind can imagine.
Head on down to the Kemah Boardwalk for their School’s Out Summer Bash. This fun weekend of events will include live music, movies, entertainment, kids’ movies, fireworks and more! June 1 is also the first night of Fireworks Fridays, a series of captivating fireworks displays and late-night specials for everyone to enjoy. Beginning at 9:30 p.m. every Friday through July 27, Cinema in the Sky will pay tribute to well-known film scores including Star Wars, Grease, The Greatest Showman and Guardians of the Galaxy.
Head on down to Galveston to experience some of the best art the island has to offer! For over 25 years, the Galveston Art Center has produced ArtWalk, but it is now expanding to other parts of the island. Stroll through commercial galleries, non-profit art spaces, and “other walls” which include restaurants and retail stores and enjoy all the beauty of art. ArtWalk promotes visual art and supports the arts-based community.
