25th Birthday of the Houston Children's Festival

The Houston Children’s Festival, presented by Baker Hughes, was recently selected as “one of the world’s 300 unmissable events” by Frommer’s Travel Guides. Celebrating its 25th year in 2013, it is one of Houston’s signature events and has developed into one of the primary fund-raisers for Child Advocates. With a projected annual attendance of over 50,000 people, the festival celebrates over two decades of proven success for sponsors, the community, participants and most importantly, for Child Advocates and the abused and neglected children it serves.


The Houston Children’s Festival was born in 1988 and was originally known as the “Children for Children Festival.” Attracting a crowd of less than 5,000 people the first year, and it grown temendiously over the year and it found it's current home in 1999. Mayor Bob Lanier saw the exceptional value in the Houston Children's Festival and designated it “The Mayor’s Official Family Celebration.” The Houston Children’s Festival has become a cornerstone event for Child Advocates and to date has raised over $4.5 dollars to assist Child Advocates in this critical mission.
 
This year the Houston Children's Festival will be celebrating their 25th birthday! It's promised to be the best ever and my family and I can't to attend the Festival for the first time.
