Weekend Roundup August 19-21

Huntsville weekend

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it looks to be a quiet weekend, or at least it is compared to others this month! Don’t get me wrong, there is still plenty of free and/or cheap family fun to be had in Huntsville and North Alabama, but not the usual frenzy of things to choose from.

I think it’s the calm before the Fall Special Events Storm however, and it’s a good opportunity for you to check out the huge variety of local Farmer’s Markets and Consignment Sales. Don’t forget you can always find something in our full Event Calendar as well!
