The jungle would be a safer place if the chin-high grass, towering trees, and wild animals were painted on the walls and everything three-dimensional was inflatable. This dream of a danger-free nature preserve comes to life at Jump N Jungle. Voted the Best Kids’ Party Place in the Bay Area Citizen Reader's Choice Awards, the jungle lets kids leap toward the rafters on inflatable jumpers, test the bounds of gravity on giant slides, and navigate an unending labyrinth of mazes and obstacle courses. Both locations play host to weekend birthday gatherings by supplying invitations, plates and plastic cutlery, as well as staff supervision in the party room and play areas. Additionally, its childcare services include an educational curriculum for toddlers and preschoolers, as well as before school and afterschool activities for older children.
Pearland Swim Academy instills watery know-how in young aquanauts, teaching basic and advanced techniques in a comfortable, kid-friendly atmosphere. The four group lessons meet once a week in classes assembled by skill level, allowing youngsters to hone their mastery of the water away from the presence of underachieving schools of fish, many of which have among the lowest SAT scores in the nation.
Though King's Biergarten describes itself as the place "where it's Oktoberfest all year round," once a year the brew haven really goes all out recreating the traditional German beer and food festival. The restaurant transforms its parking lot into a colorful 400-person bier tent decked out with bells, ribbons, and servers dressed in lederhosen who shoulder drinks throughout the rows of beer hall-style benches and tables. Aside from sipping golden suds, crowds can also help themselves to an all-you-can-eat spread of sausage, beer pretzels, and Bavarian smoked pork loin. Bands will play live sets throughout the fest as attendees try their hand at climbing Jacobs ladders or nailing the target at the dunking booth. VIP ticket-holders will be able to camp out inside the restaurant, where they can take advantage of three-hour table reservations.
The three-day event will kick off on Friday, September 27, when local politicians including Pearland Mayor Tom Reed and Senator Larry Taylor will lead the ceremonial keg tapping. From there on out, the German brews will flow for the remainder of the weekend, with attendees trading in beer tickets for half-liters of Hofbrau Dunkel, Stiegl Lager, Franziskaner Hefeweizen, and Spaten Oktoberfest.
The Pearland International Festival was conceived as a celebration of world cuisines, music, and decorative spoons. For its inaugural fete, the festival focuses on German culture: guests will sample Oktoberfest beers, continental sausages, and German-inspired fine arts. That's not all the festival has to offer, however. Food from Asian, Middle Eastern, Latin American, and African restaurants will also be available in abundance, and performers will represent every bubble in the United States' boiling melting pot. Musical appearances include Mango Punch, six-time winner of the Houston Press Music Award; the Gary-Michael Dahl Band, who blend jazz, reggae, line dance, and zydeco; and Sanni M'mairura, an American Idol contestant with some creamy-smooth vocal stylings. Other can't-miss acts include clog dancers and dazzling Bollywood productions.
