Houston Via Colori ® is celebrating 10 years and we’re doing it in style! We have 3 stages of live entertainment, fun activities throughout the festival and of course we have our 200+ artists chalking up the streets. But we’re not stopping there. We have an exclusive scene for those of you who want to heighten your Via Colori experience – the LB Lounge, presented by Kroger.
With six signature mini-events, each with their own complementary food and drink(s), you really can’t go wrong. If you’re an early riser, why not join in a brunch event? Spend Saturday morning practicing your yoga poses or come by Sunday for a Bubbly Brunch with Barefoot wine. The LB Lounge is conveniently located by one of our 3 stages of entertainment. Music kicks off around 12pm so take a seat or stroll the streets before joining your fellow Loungers for the next mini-event.
Once you’ve made your rounds – checking the progress of our talented artists and visiting booths from face painting to the photo tent, be sure to make your way back to the LB tent for the Saturday afternoon showstopper: Posh Pets and Pinot, presented by CultureMap. You read correctly . . . we’re having a Canine Couture fashion show! So grab a glass of Pinot and watch these furbulous pets strut their stuff on the catwalk. Afterwards, take a pic with the models themselves and get to know the adoptable dogs from Friends for Life.
You’ve made it through Saturday and the festival seems to be coming to a close for the night. But wait . . . what’s going on with these luminaries? Don’t worry, friend – LB Loungers have exclusive access to the after-hours event, Starry Night with Stella Artois, sure to be hosted beautifully. If you’ve never seen Via Colori by candlelight, it’s an experience you don’t want to miss. Grab a brew and delicious appetizers and take a late-night stroll through the art-filled streets of downtown Houston.
On to Sunday Funday! You already know about the Bubbly Brunch with Barefoot, but its football season and you can’t miss the big game. Well the LB Lounge is bringing the Big Game to you! Get your tail-gaiting grub on and have a Dulce Vida margarita without missing one bit of the action.
Sunday is the last day of the festival and we’ve got to end with a bang. Join us as we celebrate Via Colori’s 10th anniversary with cupcakes and cocktails. As we toast the future of Via Colori’s to come, we also reminisce about the past. The LB Lounge was named to honor the memory of Lisa Benitez, Special Events Manager and a beloved friend of CHS. Her love for Houston and giving back to the community as well as her impeccable fashion sense will live on through the LB Lounge.
