The Heights, one of Houston’s oldest neighborhoods, is known for its tree-lined streets and beautiful period homes, awesome shopping and dining, super family friendly parks and esplanades, great schools, rocking trick or treating and their annual events. One of these great events is just around the corner…White Linen Night 2011 will be on August 6 from 6 to 10 PM. Of course, all the locals attend as well as Houston residents from all over (lasts year’s attendance reached 40,000). The festivities occur throughout the Heights area, with the two major locations being 19th Street and White Oak (6th Street).
What is White Linen Night? Well, it’s one big street festival that takes over the whole “town.” Many of the businesses, shops, art galleries, and restaurants feature complimentary receptions (yes…free food and drinks). Touted as a celebration of art, culture and “citified” bohemia, there are also fashion shows, street performers, games, live music, and an just an awesome vibe. And, as the name implies and the Houston August weather dictates, white linen fashion is in abundance although not a prerequisite to attend. This year, be sure to also throw in a little pink to your ensemble as the Heights has partnered with The Rose of Houston to raise breast cancer awareness.
We are working on trying to get more information on parking and transportation during the event. As soon as we have it we will update this post! For other updates and details, check out the event website at http://whitelinennightheights.com/.
