Mark your calendars for July 20th at 6 p.m because that's when all the fun kicks off at Discovery Green's "A Giant Leap" to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission. ✨

From 6 to 10 p.m., Discovery Green will be an oasis of all things space-themed. Did we mention it's all FREE?!  From a paratrooper landing by the Golden Knights and the United States Army's aerial parachute demonstration team to space-themed exhibitions and special appearances, this night is guaranteed to be one to remember.

Paratrooper Golden Knights

Restaurants will even be participating in all of the festivities by offering specialty space-themed menu items. Whether it's grabbing a moonpie and a variety of moonwalk cocktails at The Grove, moonrock dessert at Xochi, or a Blue Moon Eclipse cocktail at Brasserie Du Parc, there's something for everyone at this out of this world celebration! ☄️

Flea By Night will still commence as scheduled, but some Houstonian artists and designers in attendance will offer a space-themed variety of merchandise to go along with the regular onslaught of hand-crafted items.

Astronaut Lunar Landing

The night will also include a screening of Apollo 11, followed by a documentary on NASA's 1969 trip to the moon and a countdown to the exact second that man stepped foot on the moon.

Spacey Casey at Impulse
