Are the relatives going to be in town for the Thanksgiving Weekend? And are you looking for something to do besides shopping at the overcrowded malls? How about spending the evening at the Sam Houston Race Park in Northwest Houston. Enjoy live Thoroughbred Racing as it returns to Sam Houston Park on November 23rd. The excitement continues with concerts scheduled for November 23rd and November 24th. Grammy nominated country singer-songwriter, Miranda Lambert will perform on Friday and Texas country musician, Kevin Fowler will perform on Saturday. Arrive at Sam Houston Race Park hungry, because they have 2 restaurants, 8 bars, and 5 concession stands ready to tempt your taste buds. The Winner’s Circle Restaurant is one of my personal favorites. You will enjoy feasting on their five star buffet while you get caught up in the action. The dining tables provide a fantastic view of the finish line. Sam Houston Race Park is just a short drive from Spring TX on Beltway 8 between 249 and I45.
