July 4th Weekend Extravaganza at Sam Houston Race Park

The Sam Houston Race Park Firework Extravaganza includes 12 live races and a performance by Team Ghost Rider that features four monkeys riding dogs and herding sheep (we’re hoping for marching-band formations, but the sheep aren’t always too cooperative). Then it’s time for the fireworks, one of the biggest displays in the city. Noon. 7575 North Sam Houston Parkway West. For information, call 281-807-8700 or visit www.shrp.com. $4 to $10.

Sat., July 3; Sun., July 4, 2010
