Looking for some fall fun in Beaumont? Check out these options!

Family Fun at Museum Madness
In its second year, Museum Madness weekend is sure to bring fun for the whole family. Taking place October 20 to 23, the weekend includes both museums and attractions holding events that Thursday through Saturday. The weekend will start off with a lecture series at the McFaddin-Ward House, then trick-or-treating at Spindletop-Gladys City Boomtown Museum on Friday. That Saturday is packed full of events at the Beaumont Children’s Museum, Art Museum of Southeast Texas, Texas Energy Museum, John Jay French Museum and more. Or stop by neighboring Port Arthur to the Museum of the Gulf Coast, showcasing its new exhibit, “African American Quilters of the Gulf Coast,” throughout the weekend. Support local and give our museums and attractions a visit. 
Birding at Cattail Marsh
Located on the Central and Mississippi flyways, Southeast Texas has become a hotspot for birding opportunities. Now, internationally known and most widely visited in the area is the Cattail Marsh Wetlands at Tyrrell Park. Whether a life-long birder or somewhat new to the activity, Cattail Marsh is home to over 280 bird species that visitors flock to see. The 900 acres of wetlands are home to over 30 species of ducks, snow geese, egrets, hummingbirds, warblers, buntings, hawks, bald eagles and more. If birds aren’t your thing, the Cattail Marsh Wetlands Education Center offers free yoga every Saturday, kids’ activities, tours and information about the wetlands and other birding and outdoor options. 
Ivory Bill Boat Ride on the Neches River
Explore the Neches River via the Ivory Bill with the Big Thicket Association. The 32-passenger pontoon boat gives visitors the opportunity to see the river while learning about the unique ecosystems along the way. Often referred to as “The Last Wild River” with dense bottomland forests of hardwoods and pine trees, the area is home to more than 200 tree species, 47 mammals, 300 birds and many reptiles and amphibians. Public tours are offered every Saturday. Chartered tours for groups can also be arranged. We highly recommend rounding up friends and family and making a trip!
Catch a Show at the Jefferson Theatre
What started as a way to showcase the historic Jefferson Theatre, Classic Movie Nights has turned into a regular event both locals and visitors have come to love. Movie nights are offered every month, giving families and friends the opportunity to gather inside the beautiful theatre in downtown Beaumont. Sip on craft beers and enjoy delicious snacks while viewing your favorite movies. Adult tickets are $6 and kids under the age of 12 are $4.
