In Prestonwood Forest, family-oriented events for our residents are established traditions. Prestonwood family events span the four seasons and include the: Easter Egg Hunt, Independence Day Parade & Picnic, Fall Festival and Nite of Lites. Homeowner committees are an essential part of planning and implementing these annual events and participation is open to all of our residents.
Be sure to visit this website often for late-breaking updates and the Event’s dates and times. Residents who would like to be part of Event planning and implementation are welcome to Contact Us for more information. Everyone is invited to share Event photos for inclusion in the Photo Gallery slideshows – and to view those submitted by our friends and neighbors!
Easter Egg Hunt
The Easter ‘Eggstravaganza’ starts the season of Prestonwood Forest’s family events. The annual Easter Egg Hunt is open to Prestonwood Forest children of all ages and includes a visit from the ‘Easter Bunny’! Activities are organized by age group and are held ‘rain or shine’ on the Clubhouse lawn - the Saturday before Easter Sunday!
Independence Day Parade & Picnic
The Independence Day Parade & Picnic in the Park is the all-around favorite of Prestonwood Forest families! Residents of all ages are invited to decorate everything (and everyone) in the ‘Red, White & Blue’ to ‘Roll and Stroll’ in the Parade. Awards are given in a variety of ‘Best Decorated’ categories. Residents are also invited to continue the fun after the Parade, with the neighborhood picnic lunch, and organized games, music and fun at the Clubhouse pool!
The Fall Festival
Prestonwood’s Fall Festival is the newest of the Prestonwood Forest family events, and is scheduled on the first Saturday of October. The Fall Festival is a ‘big tent’ event that brings Prestonwood families together one last time before ‘Nite of Lites’. Residents enjoy an autumn afternoon of fun, music, and family activities. The purpose of the event is to continue to strengthen our neighborhood’s unique ‘social fabric’ by promoting: ‘neighbor-to-neighbor’ communication; resident interaction with representatives from Prestonwood’s many volunteer organizations and with representatives from our Precinct 4 Constable Department; and neighborhood block participation in ‘National Night Out’.
Nite of Lites
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 runs from the first weekend in December through the last weekend in December.
