CityPlace to host Fall-Themed Events in October
HOUSTON, TX – There’s no shortage of tricks and treats in October at North Houston’s CityPlace, the best-in-class urban mixed-use district anchoring Springwoods Village. As temperatures drop and fall weather rolls into Houston, outdoor activities take prominence, including a spooky Family Movie Night, breezy Sunday Strolls on the plaza, a pet-friendly Canines & Croissants fête, fitness activations and more.

Children are encouraged to dress as their favorite storytime character —or sheep— for the occasion.
