Discovery Green, the 12-acre park in the heart of downtown Houston, brings back the Academy Sports + Outdoors FUNomenal Family Festival on May 26. This free festival welcomes families from across Houston to enjoy a day of fun with rides, games, contests, educational activities and more. Event headliner Born in a Taxi presents The Curious Game, a chess game that comes to life with pomp, ceremony and silly characters.
Throughout the day, classic storybook and superhero characters will make appearances; some of Houston’s most talented dance troupes will perform; and kids can enjoy three foam parties, play in the NERF Blasting Zone, roll around in hamster balls and more. Special festival rides include a dual zip-line, a Ferris wheel, an Airborne Adventure, a wrecking ball ride, a bungee trampoline and many more.
