Katy TX Memorial Day Activities

This weekend is Memorial Day, the unofficial start to summer in Katy TX, but it’s not the usual weekend of festivals and events due to COVID-19 closures and cancellations. Still, as your Katy real estate agent, I am here to fill you in on some fun options you have for your holiday weekend. Make the most of it and get excited for the summer season!

1.  Sign up for the Remember the Fallen Virtual 21K Run Walk and get your exercise in for a great cause! This run pays tribute to those who have died in service to our country. Once you register, a race packet will be mailed to you. Choose any location to run or walk your race, indoors or outdoors, and then submit your results for medals and bragging rights. You’ve got until June 15 to complete it!

2.  Restaurants and shops in Katy TX are open for business at 25 percent capacity. It’s wise to call your favorite local business to see what your options are, and if reservations are needed. LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch has a list of restaurants open for dine-in and stores open for shoppers available on their website. Restaurants are still open for curbside, pickup or delivery as well, grab some food and have a picnic at a park or in your backyard!

3.  Head outside for some fresh air at local parks or trails. The paths are open for walking and biking, making it a great option for family activity this weekend. Here’s a list of walking trails within Katy city limits, and here’s a list of hiking trails near Katy. Practice social distancing and plan ahead, as playgrounds, bathrooms and pavilions are still closed at this time.

4.  Enjoy other outdoor activities. Some sports and recreation activities have resumed, with only four participants at a time, such as pools and tennis courts. If you live in a community, check with your HOA or clubhouse for rules specific to your community, or call your favorite public amenity for the latest updates. If you have a backyard pool, this weekend is a great opportunity to open it!

5.  Speaking of home, this weekend is also a great time to accomplish some of the home maintenance or home improvement projects you’ve been wanting to do. Spend time outdoors pruning trees and shrubs, planting gardens, fertilizing lawn, and cleaning grill and outdoor furniture. You might be spending a lot of time in your backyard this summer! Inside, seal any gaps around windows for better energy efficiency, clean ceiling fans, inspect air conditioner, etc.

Enjoy your weekend and the start of summer. Get creative with activities to keep you busy! If you have buying/selling goals you’d like to achieve in the Katy real estate market this summer, give me a call, your Katy real estate agent. I am here to answer any questions you may have, and to guide you through the entire process!

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.
