While technically this coming weekend is not “really” a holiday weekend, it sort of is since July 4th is on Tuesday this year. So, since many people will stretch this into a long weekend, we can treat it as such.

And if you are looking for things to do this weekend in and around Huntsville, you’re in luck because we have plenty to do. Here’s what’s happening in the Huntsville area this weekend:
