Nite of Lites at Prestonwood Forest!

The Nite of Lites festivities are the crown jewel of annual Prestonwood Forest events! Prestonwood Forest has been recognized for over 40 years in the Greater Houston area - and nationally - for welcoming thousands of visitors to share our community’s holiday spirit of well-decorated homes.

Homeowners participate in friendly competition for a variety of individual and block recognition categories which are awarded by a committee of guest judges. Additionally, our residents and wandering guests contribute to the fun by registering votes for their favorite home – online – for recognition in the special ‘People’sChoice’ award category!

The Nite of Lites event typically begins on the second weekend in December and runs through the last weekend in December.

2019 Fall Festival Photos Print E-mail
2019 Fall Festival We all really enjoyed the 2019 Fall Festival on Saturday, October 5th. The temperature was a cool, crisp 95 degrees and there were falling leaves and lots of smiles everywhere.

Here are some photos of the Prestonwood residents, neighborhood Constables and friends appreciating the activities, food and music!

When you see them, please thank our talented resident photographers Lupita and Noe Pena.

Scheduling pool hours for weekends in September is always a tentative schedule based on whether or not there is enough resident usage of the pools to warrant the exorbitant costs involved to keep them open. The Board has reviewed the usage over the past few weeks and made a fiscal decision to close the pools for the remainder of the season as of today in an effort to cut excess waste of funds.
But please mark your calendars that pool 1 will be open one last time (weather permitting) on October 5 from 11-7 pm for the Fall Festival!

Clubhouse Pool – Special Hours and Activities
The Clubhouse Pool (Pool-1) opens early at 10:00 am and residents are reminded to pack their ‘Recreation Access Card’ along with their swim gear when coming to the Parade.

The Parade begins on Prestonwood Forest Drive at Ravenhurst Lane and ends at Glencliffe Lane at the Hancock Elementary School parking lot.

Street traffic will be diverted during this event, and you might not want to leave your windows down, if parking nearby.
