Huntsville Weekend Roundup February 2-4

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 – we even decided to give it it’s own mini-roundup to help busy parents plan.

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!
