Those of you coming to MLW in Huntsville will be interested in checking out the city’s events calendar, http://ourvalleyevents.com/ .
There’s so much on tap that one may wish to extend your stay to take in some of the events. (The Huntsville-Madison County Public Library (HMCPL) is center stage for several events.
Among the events, various venues, which might appeal to MLW attendees are:

- Sun., 8 Dec 200 area craftspeople showcase a large variety of crafts, Von Braun Center, South Hall, 1200-1700.
And the list goes on, and on…..but I’ll let you explore the user-friendly events calendar for things like Harry Potter’s World Exhibit, the Festival of Wreaths, Donato Giancola’s “From Middle Earth to Outer Space and Beyond” for sci/fi aficionados, and “Da Vinci, the Genius” exhibit, to name a few.
Plenty of good shopping as well as tons of restaurants (love German food? Find it here) in Rocket City. Remember a dine-around is on tap for Sunday evening, so plan to meet up in the hotel’s lobby/bar, 1800.
