Free outdoor events, foods this weekend


If you're looking for a relaxing Father's Day filled with great music, or if you would prefer a more outdoor-themed Father's Day weekend, we've got you covered and it's all free.

To celebrate Father's Day, take your father and your blankets out to the Miller Outdoor Theatre for a free night at the symphony. It's the ExxonMobil Summer Symphony Nights, featuring the Houston Symphony performing -- among other works -- Beethoven's Seventh Symphony. The concerts are Friday and Saturday night both starting at 8:30pm. You can get your free tickets at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office before the show, or as always, it's free open seating on the lawn.

If you prefer to spend time with dad 'roughing it' in the great outdoors, head over to Bear Creek Pioneers Park. There you'll find everything from a nature trail with biking and hiking to a wildlife habitat, playground area and a tennis court. It's free admission to the park every day.

And for more free activities outdoors with dad next week, head over to Discovery Green Wednesday, June 20 and enjoy a free kayak class on Kinder Lake. The class features lessons in safety and instruction plus a lesson in supervised paddling. You must be 18 or older to grab a paddle and kayak and participate.

So if after a great Father's Day dinner, you're looking to shed a few pounds, then join the workout party at Discovery Green for a free Zumba class to anyone who's ready for the challenge. Bring your towel and water to the Anheuser-Busch stage this Wednesday, June 20 from 6:30pm to 7:30pm.

And if Zumba isn't your speed, maybe a little Pilates? Pure Body Studio is offering free Pilates classes on the patio at the H-E-B location in the Montrose area. The class is offered every Saturday and Sunday in June and July at 8:30am.

And what's Free Stuff Friday without some free food? Take the kids out for a free meal at French Quarter Cajun Seafood Monday through Thursday after 4pm. And over at Peppers Steak and Seafood in Pasadena, kids 12 and under eat free every Monday and Tuesday all day long. Keep in mind, it's one free kids meal per adult meal.
