There is going to be a barbecue, outdoor beer gardens, live music and a dj, clowns, face painting, and much more.

The Golden Fire Department will be stopping by so kids can get up close to one of the fire trucks.

Fans of the Rockets will also get the chance to meet the players who will be at the event from 4  to 4:45 p.m. to sign autographs and meet fans.

Season tickets holders will also be able to pick up their tickets at the event.
