Spring into Fun in Houston

Texas in the springtime is truly a site to behold. It’s a time when bluebonnets, the state flower, dust fields and roadsides with sprays of purple and the sound of chirping birds fills the air. Spring is a time of warm-but-not-too-warm days where locals and visitors can enjoy time outside with Mother Nature without sweating or needing a jacket. Spring, in Texas and around the world, is a time to enjoy flowers blooming, green grass beckoning for kids to play on it and animals coming out of hibernation to enjoy the sunshine.

Spring is also a time of festivals. From flower festivals to music festivals and canine-friendly festivals to kid festivals, Texas residents and visitors can fill their spring calendars with festivals galore to explore and learn in the warm spring sunshine. The Houston area in southeast Texas is a great springtime festival destination if you want to make some great memories this year. Check out these amazing festivals that will bring a smile to your face after the chilly winter you just left behind.
