It’s a great weekend to keep an eye on the sky! Fly a kite during AshaKiran’s virtual Community Kite Festival, or check out the Huntsville Botanical Garden’s newest children’s installation, Tweetsville. Take a trip back to the 1800s during Burritt’s Fire on the Mountain or help keep Huntsville beautiful with two community clean up days. 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!
Vote on your Huntsville favorites for an award from Rocket City Mom!
Now more than ever small local businesses need your support! What better way is there to offer that support than by telling a friend or neighbor how great your experience was and encouraging them to use that business? THAT’S what makes our annual Family Favorite Awards so special! Vote on your Huntsville favorites throughout the month of March here.
