HOUSTON, TX — Got plans this weekend? Check out these Houston Happenings.

Kidpendence Day

The stars and stripes will be in full effect as we celebrate our country`s 240th birthday at the Children`s Museum of Houston. Before rockets glare and fireworks are in the air, exercise your right to be a kid as long as possible with some good ole American fun. Part of the 2016 top S.E.C.R.E.T.  summer of spies!  The museum is hosting “Kidpendence day” on Independence day starting as early as 11:30 am.

Don`t forget to wear your red, white, and blue to pay tribute to the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Tickets are $12.

Us Family Health Plan Freedom over Texas

The eyes of Texas will be on Houston as fireworks ignite the sky, and country tunes set the stage for Houston`s signature patriotic celebration, “US Family Health Plan Freedom over Texas”. This year`s event features former Hootie & the Blowfish lead singer turned solo country artist star Darius Rucker. The evening will finish with a spectacular blast of fireworks.

It’s on the 4th of July from 4 until 10 pm at Eleanor Tinsley park.
