on June 04, 2014, 12:28pm

As previously reported, Drake is celebrating the city of Houston, TX with HAW (Houston Appreciation Weekend), a four-day event taking place June 12th – 15th. Today, Drizzy revealed the full itinerary of festivities planned for the weekend, and it includes everything from a pool party to a basketball tournament to a warehouse concert.

The weekend begins on Thursday, June 12th when Drake hosts “Houston Appreciation Night” during that evening’s Houston Astros game. Also, he’ll present a “hookah pop up” at the city’s Prospect Park and throw a kickoff party at a local venue.

On Friday, he’ll perform a Warehouse concert, followed by a star-studded afterparty at the Gatsby featuring Lil Wayne and other special guests. The following day will see a HAW pool party and screening of the film Think Like a Man Too, as well as an afterparty with Kevin Hart and others.

And on Sunday, Drake will host a HAW basketball tournament before holding one last big bash at Club Paradise with special guests.

Drake has long considered Houston his second home. In 2009, he performed a show in the city and was joined on stage by hometown hero Bun B, helping to cement his place among hip-hop’s new bred of stars. He recently immortalized that concert by getting a Houston tattoo.
