The weekend is here and if you’re anything like my family, you’re looking for stuff to do to keep you busy. This weekend why not take the kids to the Children’s Museum of Houston for FREE? This Sunday, February 8, is Opening Day of ReelAbilities: Houston Disabilities Film Festival.
Taking place February 8-12 in various venues throughout Houston, ReelAbilities is a film, art and events festival featuring original films that focus on the challenges, blessings and issues of living with a disability.
As I mentioned, the Opening Day event will take place at the Children’s Museum at 1:00 on February 8. There’s free admission to the museum along with a screening of Dolphin Tale 2, the tale of Winter, a dolphin with a prosthetic tail, and a special presentation with guide dogs from Seeing Eye Inc.
The film starts at 1 p.m., but it’s recommended you arrive by 12:30 pm to receive take-home photo magnets of your children with the Guide Dogs. Tickets are FREE but registration is required. Reservation includes free cookies and milk, reduced parking fee, museum admission and a take home photo-magnet of your children with guide dogs.
