Halloween is fast approaching, and with all of the trick-or-treaters in Katy, you need a lot of candy! We decided to buy online this year through Amazon, and I wanted to write a quick review because our experience was very positive.
We ordered four types of chocolate candy, all for unbeatable prices. The bags came in one big box surrounded by about fifteen ice packs to keep the sweets from melting. If you get Super Saver Shipping (which is free shipping) you really could not ask for a better deal. Now, I do not have to worry about stocking up on overpriced candy, and I have a lifetime supply of lunch bag coolers!

Through the years, the Fort Bend County Fair has grown into one of the largest and most successful fairs in the State. Residents of the county eagerly anticipate visiting with friends and neighbors at some of the many activities the Fair has to offer.
Youth education has always been a primary focus in Fair activities. In more recent years, the development of a scholarship program has provided deserving 4-H, F.F.A., and F.H.A. students of Fort Bend County with scholarships to Texas colleges and universities.
A Season Pass costs $40; Adult Admission costs $10; Child Admission costs $5.

The Katy Dog Park
5414 Franz Road
First of all, what is a dog park?
The Houston Dog Park Association (www.houstondogpark.org) states that, “Houston Dog Parks are public parks designated and built specifically for you and your dog to socialize and exercise safely and off-leash.”
The Katy Dog Park consists of 14 acres of grass, shade trees, a paved walking trail, water fountains, benches, agility equipment, a doggie wading pool, and a dog washing area. It was opened in March 2007, and is managed by the City of Katy. Dogs of all sizes are welcome to walk off-the-leash seven days a week from dawn until dusk. Events such as HOWL-o-WEEN and PAWS in the Park Easter Egg Hunt, among others, are held yearly.
