Here are 4 things to know this week if you live in The Woodlands area.

1. Staying in town for spring break? Creekside Park Village Green is hosting Spring Break Splash for families every day this week from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Free items will be passed out daily while supplies last, including sunglasses on Monday, beach balls on Tuesday, visors on Wednesday, water squirt guns on Thursday and bubbles on Friday.
