Texas Renaissance Festival

Something very special is happening in Plantersville every weekend in November – the Texas Renaissance Festival. Only about 30 miles from Lake Conroe / Houston North KOA RV park and campground, the town will host Roman Bacchanal, a festivity that involves some of the entertainment of ancient Rome, on November 2 and 3.

Visitors can either compete or cheer contestants on who take part in the Bocce Ball Contest, Toga Contest and the Spaghetti Eating Contest. Street characters dressed in period costumes will be roaming through the village, and stage performances will be provided by the Clan Tynker Family Circus, as well as Sound and Fury. The featured artist is Peter Stachowiak, who creates fantasy in pewter figurines and jewelry.

Each weekend will have a different theme, so try to attend them all. This festival in the nation’s largest Renaissance theme park is well worth a visit. Visit our website and book your spot today.

The Odd Couple

Everyone remembers The Odd Couple, a television show that paired the clean-freak, Felix Unger and the slob, Oscar Madison, as roommates, a situation which made for episode after episode of comedy. On October 19 and 20 the Owen Theatre will present this Neil Simon play, and campers at Lake Conroe / Houston North KOA RV park and campground can once again enjoy the hilarity that ensues when a fastidious personality lives with one who is cleaning-challenged.

An alternative entertainment on October 20 is the Texas Go Dance at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds in Exhibit Building #2. On that same evening, families with children may prefer to attend the Trick or Treat Trail followed by a movie in the woods.

Whether you choose the play, dance or Halloween activities, you’ll have a good time in the community this weekend. Visit our website and reserve your spot today.
