Crunkleton is excited to announce that Pop-Up Parks will be returning to Downtown Huntsville this October for their third annual event!

This year we are looking forward to some new and exciting Pop-Up Park participants, as well as some returning favorites!

If you’re new to the concept and are wondering what a “Pop-Up Park” even is, here’s a quick run down for you:

In 2013 Downtown Huntsville Inc invited local companies from all over Huntsville to participate in the unique challenge of creating a miniature park! Here’s the catch though; it had to fit in a standard parallel parking spot, other that that, all was far in love and Pop-Up Parks.

Year one was such a success that it has since turned into a full-fledged annual event in Downtown Huntsville!

It’s fun, interactive and best of all it’s FREE!

The date set for this year’s event is October 16th – October 25th, so make sure to mark your calendar and come downtown to experience this one of a kind annual community event.

We couldn’t be more excited to be back again as sponsors!

Pop Up Park Returns to Downtown Huntsville

Downtown Huntsville, Inc.’s Pop Up Parks are back! Parking spaces around downtown have been transformed in to music stages, playgrounds, life-sized checker boards, a helicopter cockpit (that makes some very life-like sounds) and human foosball fields. Crunkleton & Associates is proud to be the sponsor for this year’s event. Be sure to stop by and check out the creative designs by area businesses and organizations. The parks will be downtown until October 26th. Here are a few pictures of part of the Crunkleton & Associates team enjoying the beautiful weather and Pop Up Parks.
