The taste of fall is in the air — or at least it’s in our coffee cups! Activities have picked back up in the RGV (yay!!), and we’ve put together a listing of family-friendly RGV outings and events in October 2021.

So, grab your cuties — and their costumes — and let’s have some Family Fun in the RGV! Use the hashtag #rgvfamilyfun or tag us @thergvmoms on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!
