Families and individuals in East Aldine celebrated a late Father’s Day last Saturday, with a Fun Day sponsored by the East Aldine District, and taking place at the Town Center Amphitheater from 3 to 7pm, and then continuing at 7pm at the Fishing Pier in Keith Wiess Park.

The dual event was organized by East Aldine’s new Event Coordinator, Alma DeAlejandro, Veronica Sanches of EAD, and Selina Valdez of Pct. 2.

During the Father’s Day event at the East Aldine District, dads enjoyed with their kids an inflatable rock climbing game, and shooting basketball at another inflatable.

Local organizations such as Baker Ripley, Harris County Pct. 2, Mean Green training and bootcamp and others where on site providing information about programs offered.

Other activities at the event included boat making, boat racing at the retention lake, a boxing demonstration, a tent building contest, music, food trucks, and more.

Keith Wiess Park was busy in the evening, with walkers as well as the families who were fishing in the Father’s Day event.

Hot weather this week limited the crowd, but the openness of the amphitheater, the splash pad, lake racing, and fishing at Hall’s Bayou in Keith Wiess Park helped keep everyone cool and have an enjoyable time.

East Aldine has planned a series of events during the year, to keep activities lively at the Town Center. During the month of July, a Hollywood movie will be shown on a giant screen every Friday night at 8:30, with popcorn, snow-cones and drinks available just like in a theater.

The first movie showing will be July 1st, and the movie is National Treasure 2, Book of Secrets starring Nicholas Cage. The other four movies scheduled for July at shown in the advertisement on this page. They include family favorites, such as Clifford’s Really Big Movie, Jumanji The Next Level, Raya & The Last Dragon, and In the Heights.

The East Aldine District welcomes your suggestions on other activities you would like at Town Center.
