Huntsville Weekend Roundup February 1-3

It’s a new month in the Rocket City, and February is ACTION PACKED, folks! I’m always surprised such a short month manages to be so busy. All of this freezing weather has the kids bouncing of the walls, but this Indoor Play Guide to Huntsville helps out a lot.

As always, we list our favorite free/cheap weekend activities for kids in Huntsville here in the WERU. Of course, you can always find even more things to do inside our full Event Calendar, so if you don’t see something below go check that out!
