Huntsville Weekend Roundup January 3-5

January weekends are usually pretty quiet in North Alabama, but this weekend still has some awesome things going on in the Huntsville area for kids & their families. Just keep an eye on the weather – it’s supposed to be a rainy one! Keep our Indoor Play ideas handy.
