The weather is shaping up to be much warmer this weekend and there are some great outdoor events to help you celebrate! Explore nature with the littles and go bird watching at the Huntsville Botanical Garden’s latest children’s experience, or enjoy a bird’s eye view with crafts and activities during Little Farmers’ Birds of a Feather. Revisit your favorite grumpy ogre’s swamp during Grissom High’s production of Shrek the Musical. Check out some of our other top picks below or view our full calendar to plan your perfect weekend.
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!
