Holiday Happenings Close to Home

December 05, 2019

When it comes to holiday happenings, Woodforest residents are spoiled for choice. Residents enjoy a jam-packed schedule of events planned just for them by our Director of Fun including breakfast with Santa, a holiday storytime and our eagerly anticipated Blitzen’s Bash featuring ornament decorating, hot cocoa and cookies, a trackless train, petting zoo and more.

If those activities weren’t enough, Woodforest residents can easily explore a sleighful of activities held throughout Montgomery County including those in The Woodlands and Conroe.
