It is Halloween and Legoland is ready to kick off the celebration this week with kiddos, the State Fair of Texas closes out this weekend with the State Fair Showdown featuring Texas Southern vs. Southern University, and much more this week.

For theater fans, you can enjoy the outstanding show on stage at Bishop Arts Theatre Center entitled The Champion. It is the story of the legendary Nina Simone. Read NDG’s review here where David Wilfong says, “Roaf and Pitts pull off standout performances in the play, portraying two very different women from different backgrounds, at very different places in their life; Simone the seasoned professional of great renown, and Theresa the starry-eyed young girl with simple hopes and ambitions.”

Brick-or-Treat at LEGOLAND Discovery Center on Oct. 20 – 28 – They are hosting fun Halloween party for the kids so come dressed up and be ready to be amazed at the Legoland work. More details here.
