Visitors to the Dionsio Winery Wine Festival sample the award-winning rich reds, crisp whites, and sweet fruit wines from a selection of local wineries.

Energetic classic rock outfit Thermal Fusion fills the air with a catchy live soundtrack, as staff fill commemorative wine glasses with endless samples of Dionisio's delicious wines. With food, wine, and tunes provided by Houston-based bands and businesses, the fest is a better way to celebrate the local culture than nibbling sandwichs into the shape of the Astro's stadium.

Although black soldiers have served in every American war, they weren't formally included in the regular US Army until an act of Congress in 1866. Their regiments?the 9th and 10th Cavalry and the 24th and 25th Infantry?became known as Buffalo Soldiers, a nickname originally conceived as a term of respect by the American Indians they often fiercely fought in battle. Eventually, the nickname came to be used for all black soldiers, even after the military was integrated and the units disbanded. Located in Houston's Museum District, the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum is the only museum in the nation primarily dedicated to preserving the legacy of African American soldiers, ranging from the Revolutionary War to the Persian Gulf War. Their rich history is too often forgotten when the stories of American conflicts are told. Former slaves and Civil War veterans joined the original regiments, and the soldiers served their country even while they weren't afforded equal rights. The museum features galleries of artifacts from various wartime eras, a historical reenactment, and preserved interviews with the last Buffalo Soldiers, who served in World War II.

The Houston Fire Museum celebrates the blaze-battling bravery of Houston's early firefighters as well as the tools they used in their line of work. Historical exhibits such as the 1937 Chevrolet pumper truck and the 1895 Ahrens Fox horse-drawn steamer give guests a look at the earliest fire trucks. During guided tours, visitors can follow the steps of a 1950s firefighter as he responds to a call. But the museum is more than just a history of firefighting. Guests can soak up practical fire-prevention tips and learn how to draft an escape plan for their own home. In the Junior Firehouse, kids can host birthdays, where they dress in miniature bunker coats and slide down an authentic fire station pole padded at the bottom with gym mats and a pile of friendly, furry dalmatians.
