School’s about to be out for the summer. That means pool parties, snowcones, fireworks, late bedtimes, vacations and all those other activities that mark the lazy, hot days in the Lake Houston area.

Celebrate this most favorite time of the year for children at the Kingwood Summerfest where there will be something for all to enjoy. Start off the carefree season Saturday, June 3, at Kingwood Town Center. From 10 a.m-8 p.m. there will be so much to do, see and taste, including carnival rides, games, a petting zoo, pony rides, inflatables, a water slide and much more for the kiddos in the huge kids zone.

Kick up your heels with live music with “One Way Home.” There will be ongoing live entertainment featuring local talent including dance troupes. Eat and shop to your heart’s content with food trucks and a huge vendor market with up to 100 booths, including some unique ones such as henna tattoos.

Lawn chairs and coolers are welcome. This free event is hosted by Do It Monthly, This is Kingwood, and Michael Kelley, Realtor. For food truck and vendor information, visit



Before you go …

… we’ve got a small favor to ask. More people are reading The Tribune than ever. Advertising revenues across the media  spectrum are falling fast. And unlike many news organizations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Tribune's independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. Support the only locally owned, locally produced news product in the Lake Houston area.  And thank you!

I grew up on a farm in New Mexico and miss eating hot chile and having four seasons. I didn't start college until I was already a mother and double majored in English and anthropology. I received an Honors B.A. from the University of Louisiana-Lafayette and was named “Outstanding Student” in English. My honors thesis is titled “The Enduring and Ever-Changing Legend of La Llorona.” I worked as a police reporter for a bit before staying home in Kingwood to raise my two daughters. My hobbies include reading, gardening, cooking and traveling.
