Event Roundup: What to Look Forward to This Weekend
Happy Friday! Here are some events to look forward to this weekend:
Theta Charity Antiques Show
The Houston Alumnae Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta will host the 2019 Theta Charity Antiques Show at the George R. Brown Convention Center this weekend. This year’s event will be the Theta Charity Antiques Show’s grand finale - a celebration of the countless exhibitors, speakers, volunteers, and patrons who have made the show possible since 1952. The lineup of speakers include nationally-renowned design experts. Funds raised will support local charities.
Kick off the holiday season with Frostival at Discovery Green on Friday evening. The annual park-wide celebration features ice carving demonstrations by Reverend Butter and DLG Ice Factory, ice sculpture photo opps, skating at The ICE powered by Green Mountain Energy and more. The event also marks the public opening of Paloma, an art installation. The Ice is open through Feb. 2; see details here.

This light display at Constellation Field where the Skeeters play, containing over 3 million lights, is one of the largest in the Greater Houston area. An Opening Night lighting ceremony takes place at 6 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 22, and the light festivities will run through Jan. 5.
Via Colori features more than 200 local, national and international artists that create impressive chalk murals on the streets of downtown Houston this Saturday and Sunday.
