The carnival is especially a favorite with all of the rides, games and funnel cakes. Sometimes you don’t have to leave town for an entertaining spring break. For Houston, the excitement is right here at home because everything is held at NRG Stadium March 7-26. There is even a shuttle that can take you and your crew to the designated area after parking your car(s) in a safe spot.
