There’s truly something for everyone this Huntsville Weekend! Look to the stars with the Space and Rocket Center’s newest exhibit, Dare to Explore: Milestones to Mars or be introduced to orchestra music during the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra’s free family concert. From night hikes to virtual story times, we’ve included some of our top weekend picks below. Don’t see anything for you? Be sure to check out our events calendar for a complete listing.
If you do choose to go out please remember your mask and hand sanitizer or just stay home if you’re able. Covid rates for North Alabama are beginning to head in the right direction, but we must stay vigilant. There’s hope!
Nominate your family favorites for an award from Rocket City Mom!
Now more than ever small local businesses need your support!
