Houston’s newest summer destination — Lagoonfest Texas — opens with $1.5 million in upgrades May 28 at Lago Mar’s Crystal Lagoons® amenity, 3240 Lago Mar Blvd.
The event will be open 10 a.m. to sunset Tuesdays through Sundays through Oct. 3, with expanded evening hours some days.
Some of the improvements to the 12-acre lagoon include deepening the beaches to offer approximately triple the amount of white-sand beach, expanding the food service and bars and adding rooftop party decks. Expanded activities include more kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, sailboats and a catapult swing on the water. Live music and other entertainment also will be added to the mix. Luxury cabanas and loungers can be reserved and come with a custom food-and-drink menu. An evening cocktail cruise will be available for a private group booking.
Admission for Lagoonfest will start at $15 for children under age 13 and $20 for those age 13 and older. Prices are subject to change and will vary based on day of week and demand. Children age 2 and under get in for free. Advance tickets will be on sale starting May 8 at www.LagoonfestTexas.com. [Organizer's description]
