If your organization has something going on and would like to be included, let us know. Always check with the organization for the most updated information since information is subject to change.

Don't worry, we will remind you about these events as well! Compiling these lists is a lot of work, so please by courteous and give credit to Corpus Christi Fun for Kids when using this info.
