Houston iFest (Houston International Festival)

This is one of my favorite events of the year. It's held downtown and lasts for two weekends. Each year the iFest celebrates the cultures of one country, with other booths providing food, entertainment, shopping and other exhibits.

March of Dimes Walk America

Not one bad thing can be said about the March of Dimes Walk America that takes place in Houston. It's put on to help fundraise for research to help reduce infant deaths and defects. Everyone involved in this is going straight to heaven.
