HOUSTON (KIAH) — Houston Happens host Maggie Flecknoe has a lot of reasons for you to celebrate on this Friday Eve.

First, she wants to wish a very happy birthday to her dad!

Speaking of celebrating Avalanche Food Group (AFG), owners of eight Twin Peaks restaurant locations across Texas, will honor the Needville Little League Team who captured fourth place at the Little League World Series (LLWS) in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, last Sunday, with a team party and $10,000 donation tonight, at 5:30pm at the Twin Peaks Kirby restaurant.

The Needville Little League team, and the city itself, hold a special place in the hearts of Avalanche Food Group owners John, Joe, and Ricky Rosa.  They’re joining Maggie LIVE in studio.

As summer winds down, Children’s Museum Houston wins BIG! Children’s Museum Houston has won “Houston’s Best Museum” in Houston Chronicle’s 4th Annual Best of the Best Awards. We’re celebrating them LIVE. Plus, as the Children’s Museum Houston gets ready for its Powerful Poets events, Ariana Lee, Houston Youth Poet Laureate and Meta-Four Houston Member performs LIVE in studio.

That and more is headed your way on Houston Happens.
