If you’re in central to north Alabama you are probably in the middle of some pretty serious cabin fever. To help you deal with the mental exhaustion check out the list of activities below happening this weekend:
Lowe’s Build and Grow
Monster Jam featuring Max-D Feb. 28 at 10 a.m.
Register here. If your location is full, you can still show up but be prepared to wait for cancellations. They may not have an opening, so it’s a risk.

UAB Men’s Basketball game
Versus Middle Tennessee
Saturday 2 p.m. at Bartow Arena

Discover the Dinosaurs
BJCC Friday – Sunday
**Not cheap at all. There are some animatronic dino displays, then bounce houses, dino digs, coloring and rides. Tickets are ridiculous in my opinion.
NOTE – This is a much cheaper investment:
