Corpus Christi Fun for Kids Weekday Picks September 6-8, 2016

Tuesday, September 6, 2016
It's a short week thanks to the Labor Day weekend.  Theoretically we're supposed to start feeling a little bit like Fall but we know that really doesn't work like that around here.  With baseball wrapping up and some activities returning with the start of school, we know it's Fall even if it doesn't feel like it temparture-wise.  Make sure to follow the Facebook page because we are always posting events as they come up!
