Entertainment can consist of any activity that provides a diversion or permits people to amuse themselves in their leisure time. Entertainment is generally passive, such as watching opera or a movie. Active forms of amusement, such as sports, are more often considered to be recreation yet, spectators of sporting events are generally entertained while watching them. Activities such as personal reading or practicing a musical instrument are normally considered to be hobbies but in some situations can also be entertaining.

The Pavilion (CWMP) in The Woodlands

The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion is a non-profit organization providing a diversity in the performing and visual arts and Live Music Entertainment Choices in Houston over the past several years. The outdoor theater offers covered seating as well as a large grass covered hill for 'lawn seating'. The Pavilion was afforded a major upgrade between the 2008/2009 concert season thanks to Hurricane Ike. The upgrades to the outdoor amphitheater included replacing the entire soaring roof structure, improving guest amenities and installing additional reserved and covered seating.
