Weekend Roundup February 27-March 1


If you’re like us and reeling from this typical Alabama wacky weather, you might want to get out of the house this weekend. One thing you should be sure to do – call ahead and confirm hours & events before you head out. By Friday & Saturday it should be warmer, and most places will update their website or Facebook pages if they change hours due to cold weather.

Don’t see anything you like below? There’s lots more happening on our full Event Calendar.

Now… who’s ready for our top picks for free family-friendly fun in Huntsville? Let’s DO THIS.

It’s Spring Consignment Season in Huntsville and several area sales start this weekend including two we’d like to recommend not only because they are great sales but because they are supporters of our site and help us to bring this great information to area families week in and week out. Rocket City Consignment is located across from Madison Square Mall and includes both kids & adult clothes, household items, and more. Kids’ Kloset is located in the Huntsville Jaycee’s Building and is one of the largest children’s consignment sales in the area. Be sure to check if their open shop hours don’t change due to the weather. Get our complete list of local consignment sales HERE.
