As we do every week we’ve curated what we think are your best bets for finding a little family fun (and joy) this Huntsville weekend below, but be sure to check out our full calendar if you don’t see anything you like here. Be sure to download the free Explore Huntsville app to get all the best RCM info on the go. Just don’t forget your mask and hand sanitizer!
