Weekend Roundup February 10-12

Who’s sick of the rainy days around here? It looks like there’s still some in our future this weekend, but there’s quite a bit of fun to be had indoors in Huntsville. You can also check out our Indoor Play post to find some great options when it’s wet outside but your kids need to burn off some energy! And don’t forget our full Event Calendar!
