Begun in 2008 with attendance of 3,500, Family Day has now grown to a much-anticipated annual event with 15,000 people expected this year.  And it is bigger and better than ever! 

All food and drinks are free.  Delicious turkey legs, sausage on a stick, hot dogs, popcorn, snow cones, corn on the cob and more will be available.

Inflatable games and a rockwall will keep the kids busy, along with Major League Baseball’s Wanna Play games that teach hitting, throwing and running.  The Houston Fire Department will bring a fire truck for everyone to see and will pass out fire safety information.  Legacy Healthcare will provide health information.

Seniors will have their own tent with games, including bingo and dominoes.

Baseball fans can enjoy the game on two levels.  Texas Southern University and Prairie View A&M will again play an NCAA-regulation game at the Park’s Show Field on the north side of the Park.  And Little League games will take place on fields at the north and south sides of the Park.  All games begin at 1:30 p.m.

Music lovers are in for a treat.  J. Paul Jr. and the Zydeco Nubreeds are back by popular demand, playing on Stage 1.  And on Stage 2, a special appearance by Cliff Duncan Luv at 4:30 p.m.  Cliff Duncan Luv excites audiences with his special blend of songs, dance and words of wisdom.  He has mastered the art of entertaining both hearts and minds with his unique style for over 30 years.

Also performing again will be the Aldine Dance Company from Carver High School.  And this year, you can enjoy the sounds of the Eisenhower High School Jazz Band. 

Comcast will have lots of prizes for everyone and Pepsi will bring computer games for the kids to play.

This year, METRO is providing shuttle buses to bring attendees from three locations: 

  • Carver High School, 2100 South Victory
  • Living Word Fellowship Church, 7350 W. TC Jester
  • Lone Star Community College, 4141 Victory

The buses will run during the event from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m.  Shuttles and parking are free.
