Come to this festival for a fun time for all.
Celebrate the arrival of spring at the Fort Bend Museum’s annual Children’s Day festival! The FREE family event will take place on Saturday, March 26 from noon until 5 p.m.
Houston’s InterActive Theater Company will present “The Story of the Lone Star State” at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Each 45-minute performance will take family audiences through more than 600 years of Texas history, from Native Americans to NASA astronauts.
Families will enjoy free admission to the Fort Bend Museum’s gallery and the 1883 John M. Moore home. Other scheduled activities include face-painting, making paper pots and planting beans with the Fort Bend Junior Master Gardeners, learning about wildlife with Brazos Bend State Park and decorating (and eating!) cookies with the Fort Bend Museum Docents. The Fort Bend County Farm Bureau will bring their cotton gin and rice miller, the Brazoria County Woodcarvers Club will be on site to teach festival-goers the art of woodcarving and the Fort Bend Archeological Society will host a real archeological dig in the Moore home yard.
Families will also get to practice chores of the past with clothes washing, ginning and cotton carding activities. Spinning demonstrations will take place throughout the day at the Long-Smith Cottage. It will also be the last day to view the poster art contest in the Museum gallery, which features artwork by students of Missouri City Middle School and is presented by the Fort Bend County chapter of the Links, Incorporated.
