This Saturday evening, many businesses in Houston’s historic Heights will open their doors to participate in the 5th annual White Linen Night. Drawing more than 40,000 revelers, this free event creates a Texas-sized sense of community that includes, art, live music, fashion shows and so much more. Maps of the event can be downloaded or will be available throughout the event.
New to this year’s event is a focus on raising awareness for Breast Cancer. Pink Street will be a section of White Oak Dr., that will host several organizations passionate about education & finding a cure for this disease. Along Pink Street, event goers will drink pink lemonade and have a chance to win raffles, play fun games (Bra Pong ping pong?!), receive goodies and much more!
Many of Houston’s finest Food Trucks will be stationed throughout the event – remember to bring cash! These aren’t the trucks in front of construction sites; think gelato, Korean BBQ, and gourmet foods/artisan breads.
Fitzgerald’s will host three events, celebrating Houston’s thriving arts scene. Fresh Arts at Fitz will feature performances from Dominic Walsh Dance Theater, Stages Repertory Theater, & Talento Bilingüe de Houston as well as live music into the night.
If you live in the Heights or within a reasonable biking distance, it is highly recommended you safely bike, walk or find another form of transport. Parking in the heights will be a nightmare (coming from past personal experience). However, if these aren’t viable options, no fear – complimentary parking & shuttle service will be provided.
Saturday August, 6 from 4 p.m. – 2 a.m. Free at most participating locations.
