Events in Houston this June - Covid 19 Edition

Though Texas has begun to open, there are still few live events like we're used to in Houston. The large summertime events that draw thousands, like outdoor music festivals, BBQs, fireworks displays and all those other great outdoor activities we love to enjoy are still on hold. Even though Houston has been reopening, many businesses are being cautious and waiting longer. Sadly, some businesses will not be able to open up again.

There are some things you can do in Houston - you can get a hair cut, you can see a movie, you can visit your doctor and you can go out to eat. All of these things should be done with caution and most businesses will post clear messages about the safety measures they have taken and expect their customers and clientele to adhere to. Stay Safe Houston!
