On November 5, let’s gather for a great time at the Bissonnet Campus! Bring your family for a day of fun indoor and outdoor activities. The event is free and open to the Post Oak community and friends.
This annual event is a long-standing Post Oak tradition that’s fun for the whole family. Bring a picnic lunch or purchase some tasty treats from one of the food trucks. See more details about the day below—we have the ever-popular dunk tank, crafts, science exploration, and so much more!
Costs for this event are covered through the sale of mystery box raffle tickets. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the boxes! You don’t need to be present to win, but we hope to see you there!
Our online sale of Mystery Box raffle tickets is over, but it's not too late to buy them! Tickets will be available to purchase during arrivals and dismissals this week or at the event on Saturday.
T-shirt sales have closed. Please email Development Assistant Juliette Casas to put your name on the list for any extra tees.

The Mystery in the Box 🎫

EEEK! Science will also enthrall us the magic of heat science in their own craft booth.
Mystery boxes will be prominently on display, enticing participants with themed decorations and wonder at the incredible prizes inside! The possibility of having your name picked as a winner is just too much to resist!
