Now that school is back in session in Katy, TX, who’s ready for a holiday weekend?! As your Katy real estate agent, I’m here to fill you in on what you can do with your long Labor Day weekend, and what Katy events you have to look forward to after that.

What are your plans for Labor Day? If you’re traveling this weekend, check out my last blog post about how to keep your Katy home secure while you’re away.

This weekend is a great chance to sleep in and relax, or to get home maintenance or landscaping tasks completed that you’ve been putting off.

If you’d like to accomplish real estate goals this fall, spend some time this weekend browsing listings in the Katy real estate market, coming up with your needs vs. wants list, and gathering paperwork together for a mortgage application. If you’d like to sell, spend time decluttering, cleaning and staging your home!

You can find some great shopping deals Labor Day weekend. Head to Katy Mills or LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch for a day of shopping and dining with family and friends, or enjoy some solo shopping time!

Cool off at Typhoon Texas or a community pool and enjoy swimming or sliding down water slides as a way to celebrate the end of summer. Typhoon Texas is open until Sept. 23 for the season, but only on weekends and with shorter hours.

After Labor Day weekend, the fun doesn’t end in Katy. September events to look forward to:

1.  Fifth Street Frenzy will take place Sept. 8 from 5 to 9 p.m. Enjoy an evening out admiring vintage and classic cars, live music, BBQ and great vendors. If you’d like to adopt a pet, local animal rescues will be there as well. This event is free to the public!

What events and activities are you looking forward to this holiday weekend or this fall season? As your Katy real estate agent, I hope you enjoy your time! When you’re ready to sell, but or both in the Katy real estate market, I am here to help. I can answer all of your questions and guide you through the entire process. Now is a great time to achieve your real estate goals! Contact me!

Katy is a city located in Harris, Fort Bend and Waller Counties in the U.S. state of Texas, within the Houston–Sugar Land–Baytown metropolitan area. The population was 11,775 at the 2000 census.

Katy, suburb of Houston, Texas, is named for the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad (commonly referred to as the "K-T Railroad", now a part of Union Pacific) that ran through Katy in the 19th century. Katy was once known as Cane Island. The name is derived from Cane Island Creek which runs just west of downtown. Cane Creek is a branch of Buffalo Bayou. The origins of the name Cane Island are believed to be from the fact that Katy was once a major sugar cane producer and rice producer. To commermorate the importance of rice to the Katy community, the Chamber of Commerce holds the Rice Harvest Festival every second weekend of October.

Katy was recently the location of one of the ten large red balloons in the DARPA Network Challenge on December 5, 2009. The balloon was stationed in Katy Park.

In 2009 the Gadberry Group named Katy as one of nine "9 from 2009" most notable high growth areas in the United States.
After a low income apartment complex was proposed for development in an adjacent unincorporated area, in 2010 the Katy City Council passed a resolution stating that the development would decrease property values.[5] The plans for the complex were canceled.
