Holiday in Houston has arrived and the first gift coming to H-town is its very own Christmas light drive-thru.
The Light Park Troupe is up and ready to roll in the small town of Spring, just 30 minutes north of Houston, from November 5- December 31.
Set up in the massive parking lot of Hurricane Harbor Splashtown, this drive-thru will have you singing along to your favorite Christmas songs while being dazzled by over a million lights all from the safety of your own car.
You'll be treated to a 1-mile long spectacular light display featuring tributes to Texas, historic cowboys, classic Christmas characters, and the armed forces.
Get ready to jam, because the whole light display is sunk up to a special radio station, where you can expect to hear a special entertainment troupe made up of Santa Claus, DJ Snowflake, Barry Bear, and Pixel Penguin.
"We do not at present know the full significance of this variant, but it has a combination of mutations similar to other internationally notifiable variants of concern," said GHRC Chief Virologist Ben Neuman, "This variant combines genetic markers separately associated with rapid spread, severe disease and high resistance to neutralizing antibodies."
The carrier, a student at Texas A&M, tested positive for COVID-19 on March 5 and eventually tested positive again on the 25th, indicating to scientists that the variant may cause a longer-lasting for people aged 18-24 infection than the typical virus.
At the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Davis recognized Floyd as a "guiding light" in his community, and wanted his mural placed in front of this high school to "inspire students and give a voice to the struggle for social justice in Houston and the world."
The mural was commissioned by Harris County Commissioner Rodney Ellis, the Houston Society for Change, and 88 C.H.U.M.P., a non-profit social activism organization created by Floyd’s football teammates.
George Floyd, 46, died in May 2020 after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for 8-minutes as Floyd pleaded he couldn't breathe.
The technology-fueled experience will take you through 40 different galaxies (galleries) complete with aliens, artificial intelligence, gamification, and dazzling displays of sound, light, colors and natural elements.
The exhibits are brought to life by the power of over 9 million LED lights, 111 projectors and 65 incredibly talented artists and craftspeople.
Seismique also provided a fantastic opportunity to Houston-based artists, as 12 of the 40 exhibits were reserved for Houstonians to create their own intergalactic art experiences.
The art experience offers more than just jaw-dropping immersive adventure, as you can even sign up for educational workshops for those looking for technology-driven opportunities in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art and math.
Of course, Seismique is enforcing numerous precautions in order to make the experience pandemic-friendly, including mandatory mask requirements, limited capacity, temperature checks and timed ticketing.
Price: $35 per person
Address: 2306 Highway 6 S., Houston, TX
Why You Need To Go: This incredible art experience is truly unlike anything you've ever seen. You'll walk through 40 different galaxies as you leave behind your 2020 blues and transport to a whole new world of art and technology.
