Katy Families Can Enjoy a Vintage Carnival
Vintage Carnival is the theme for the Katy Heritage Society’s first big Fall community event. The event is set for October 16 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Katy Heritage Park (5990 George Bush Dr.)
Something for All Generations
“It’s safe, old school family fun,” says Katy Heritage Society President Adrienne Davitz. “It brings all generations and the community together.”
Katy Heritage Society hopes to make this an annual event depending on attendee feedback.
For 41 years, the Katy Heritage Society has been dedicated to preserving and protecting Katy’s past by acquiring and maintaining historic structures and working to protect local landmarks.
Their mission also applies to community events and this theme is a perfect fit.
An Early Bird Ticket Package is currently on sale. Guests can get 25 carnival tickets for $20. Prices will go up at the event. Katy Heritage Society members get $2 off their ticket package price.
Attendees will pay in tickets to play carnival games, purchase food such as cotton candy, etc. Each game will take 1-2 tickets. Additional tickets can be purchased at the event.
Over 20 Vintage Games Planned
Over 20 vintage carnival games are planned for the event. They are all being run by local companies and volunteers are set by National Honor Society members.
There will also be a petting zoo, clown, live music, and food.
All proceeds go back to the Katy Heritage Society.
The Katy Heritage Society will also have a booth set up at this weekend’s Katy Rice Festival. They participated in the Rice Festival Parade last weekend and first place "Best of Show."
Their historic homes are open for tours and a great way for local families to learn about and understand Katy’s rich history.
The Katy Heritage Society is the oldest non-profit in Katy. Learn more about this organization, home tour schedule, and membership opportunities at their website.
