Autumn brings hope for rain and a change of temperature, both of which will be welcome after a summer of unrelenting heat. The new season also brings Southminster School’s Annual Fall Festival, which is set for Saturday, Oct. 22 on the school’s campus located at 4200 Cartwright Road in Missouri City.
The day begins at 11 a.m. and continues through 3 p.m., every minute filled with a variety of activities designed both to entertain children and amuse their parents.
Games include classic children’s fare and a few contemporary twists, all created with pre-school and elementary-aged girls and boys in mind. Southminster’s Fall Festival welcomes anyone in the community who might enjoy a day of games and giggles. Spread across nearly two acres, festival activities include face painting, Tic-Tac-Toe toss, Putt-Putt, an Oreo cookie toss, football toss, baseball pitch and swing, soccer kick, horseshoes, and other opportunities for kids to get some exercise while having simple, old-fashioned fun.
Entry fee for an all-hours play pass is a reasonable $10 for the first child and $5 for each additional sibling. Simple concessions, such as bottled water, soft drinks and snacks, will be available for $1.
A complimentary concession ticket will be presented to each person who brings a non-perishable canned food item to the festival. (Only one ticket per person, please.)
