No, you’re not seeing double. Today’s Weekend Roundup is full of pairs, which means you can have twice the fun!
As always, we are here to bring you our top picks for free family-friendly fun in Huntsville and Madison County. If you don’t find something you like below, there’s more to be found in our full Event Calendar.
And now… The Roundup!
Lucky you! There are two opportunities to enjoy free live music this weekend! Kick off your weekend early Thursday night at the Gazebo Concerts in Madison hosted by the Madison Arts Council. Or… stretch your weekend a little longer on Monday night at Concerts in the Big Spring Park hosted by Huntsville’s The Arts Council Inc. Both are family-friendly and encourage kids, well-behaved dogs, picnics, and bug spray.
Movies in the Park
Not quite a double feature, but almost! There are two different ways you can watch a movie under the stars tonight. The first being Maleficent at 6:00 PM in Big Spring Park. Or if west Huntsville is more your stomping grounds, the Village of Providence will be showing Back to the Future at 7:30 on the green. Be sure to keep an eye on their Facebook Pages in case of sketchy weather – that’s where they’ll post updates.
