Weekend Roundup October 23-25

Huntsville weekend

It’s my favorite time of the week – that time when we round up all our favorite picks for your family in the next four days!

We’ve included even more picks this time, both free and those with an admission or ticket price. This time of year there are lots of opportunities to make some great Fall memories with your kids, and we think that’s worth the money on occasion.

As always, double check our Event Calendar if you don’t see something you like here, and be sure to cross off things in our Fall Activity Guide.
