Anyone else excited for another Huntsville weekend? It’s been a little over a year since the official start of the pandemic, and although we’re definitely not out of the woods, we’re excited to see the light at the end of the tunnel! We’ve gathered lots of socially distant fun for the entire family this weekend. Give back to the community during the District 5 Clean Up Day, shop local produce during the MidCity Market, or enjoy a Parents’ Night Out while the kids jump into fun at Matrix Gym. Check out some of our top picks below or view all of our event listings here.
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!
