Huntsville Weekend Roundup July 31 – August 2
Summer has flown by so fast, but you have a few more weekends to enjoy before virtual school starts – better make it count! As always we’ve got our favorite free and/or cheap things happening in the next few days below, but more can be found in our Event Calendar. You can also enjoy fun things while on the go via our FREE Explore Huntsville app.
Also – we’re trying hard to connect families struggling with this whole virtual school thing with as much academic support as we can find. If you’re a tutor or a retired teacher offering academic assistance to local parents we’d like to include you in a list we’re working on. Just fill out this form here.
