Astros Opening Day



The Astros are the World Champions!! And now their back to defend their title. Houston couldn’t be prouder. We had a great time rooting for them last year, cheering for them during the Parade and celebrating their victory in Downtown Houston. The streets filled up right after their win.

Opening Day is here. Whether you are going to the game or not, you’ll want to be Downtown in the Heart of the Action.


We will continue to post updates to this page. Including anything we hear about from the City of Houston, the Houston Astros organization, local downtown NGOs and Downtown businesses.

If you hear anything, feel free to share it with us. We will only post information that we know to be factual and complete.

You are welcome to collect all this information yourself from all the various sources but why would you when we are doing all the work for you for free!! We want to know so we are painstakingly gathering all of this information into an easy to read format. Then we are sharing it with our friends. Feel free to do the same. If you mark going or interested you will automatically get the updates. If you RSVP, we’ll email you updates.

PARKING: Due to Hurricane Harvey, many of the garages downtown are not available. Please consider taking the MetroRail, Uber, Lyft, Taxi or using PARK & RIDE for the celebration. Street parking around the route is CLOSED. Please look for emergency no parking signs before parking. Cars will be towed for security purposes. If you drive downtown, please use this website to locate a garage:www.downtownhoustonparking.org.
