Shop ’til you drop in Bridgeland this weekend

Join us this weekend with two opportunities to shop, where you can find both hidden treasures and fresh produce all in the same weekend!

This Saturday, shop at Bridgeland’s biannual Garage Sale from 8 a.m. to noon. Located in Festival Park, enjoy shopping in one convenient location instead of traveling from house to house.

On Sunday, the Farmers Market at Bridgeland will feature fall produce and an exhibition bee hive so guests can explore the world of bees. The market is held on the second Sunday of every month at Lakeland Activity Center. Be on the lookout for the list of vendors that will be at the Nov. and Dec. market as we celebrate Artisan Market Days. This annual addition to the monthly market offers unique gift items just in time for the holidays.

Howl-O-Ween Fest Returns Oct. 21

The 9th Annual Howl-O-Ween Fest returns to Bridgeland on October 21 with Sara Carson and  The Super Collies, contestants on this season of America’s Got Talent.

Sara, one of the top dog trick instructors in the world, leads The Super Collies. Her talented group has also been featured on The Late Show with David Letterman and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Along with her dog, Hero, Sara recently made it to the finals on America’s Got Talent, placing fifth overall.

Hero is no stranger to TV either, starring in several commercials for Petco, the Family Channel and the Pet Network.

It’s been a whirlwind few years for Sara and her trained dogs. She started training dogs when she was 8 and by the time she was 17, she’d made it to The Late Show with David Letterman. Five years later, she beat out almost 300,000 people who auditioned for America’s Got Talent. Now, those in attendance at Bridgeland’s Howl-O-Ween Fest will get a chance to see her act up close!

Sara and The Super Collies will be joined by the Dynamo Dogs, Houston Disc Dogs and The Amazing Blake. All four groups will be part of a lineup that features new acts performing every 30 minutes. The dog-centric holiday event will take place at Bridgeland’s Oak Meadow Park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, October 21. Read more ›

Harvey relief efforts at Friday Night Bites

September’s Friday Night Bites was more than just food and fun, it was an opportunity for people to help those that were impacted by the flood waters of Hurricane Harvey.

Houston’s First Baptist Church and the Bridgeland team before the supplies were taken for distribution.

More than 2,000 attended the event on Friday to enjoy live music and a variety of cuisine from 14 food trucks and vendors. The festivities created the perfect opportunity to join together and collect supplies for families in need. The donated items have been given to Bridgeland’s Churches – The Foundry and Houston’s First Baptist Church. Their teams are working to get the supplies into the hands of families trying to recover from the storm’s impact.

Additionally, all food trucks donated a portion of their proceeds to the  United Way Relief Fund established by The Howard Hughes Corporation in response to Hurricane Harvey.  Food for First Responders, a collection of food truck owners who are feeding first responders and volunteers in the area at no charge, will also be receiving some of the proceeds. These funds will continue to help feed those that are helping our community to recover.

Thank you to everyone who helped make the night possible. The supplies and funds that were collected will make a difference in the lives of many people.

Save the date for next month’s event! Friday Night Bites will be held on Oct. 13 from 5 to 9 PM (note the new fall hours) and more info will be coming soon.
