Around the Inner Harbor

June 13, 1992

The "Around the Inner Harbor" column June 13 inaccurately described a new Maryland Science Center exhibit about sharks as an IMAX film. The exhibit, as well as an IMAX film about Antarctica, is among the features of the center's first free admission day tomorrow. . Information: 685-5225.

The Sun regrets the error.

CELEBRATE OLD GLORY: Tomorrow's Flag Day, and while observances will be conducted in many places, the place to visit is where honoring the American flag is a special daily event: Fort McHenry.

Tomorrow's schedule at the historic star fort -- birthplace of the national anthem -- begins at 6:30 p.m. with a band concert by the Tactical Air Command Jazz Ensemble, followed by a nationwide pause for the Pledge of Allegiance at 7:30 p.m.


Lots of folks take a picnic and make an evening of it, waiting for fireworks reminiscent of the War of 1812's Battle of Baltimore. The fireworks start around 9 p.m. Information: 563-FLAG.

SURROUND SOUND: Next Thursday, break out your lawn chairs for a night of brisk Caribbean rhythms as the reggae sounds of Uprising reverberate around Hopkins Plaza -- between Baltimore Street, Charles Street and Hopkins Place.

The Baltimore-based group's free concert -- with eats and beverages available for a price -- runs from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Zebulun, another reggae group, will be the opening act.

This show kicks off the summer's La Provence Thursday Night Concert Series -- a one-night-a-week concert series running through Sept. 3. Information: 837-4636. If the weather's bad, call 837-6600 to see if the show will go on.

MOONGLOW (AND MORE), FREE: Stargazers can watch a partial lunar eclipse at the Maryland Science Center late tomorrow and for free, hear a narration of what's going on.

The Science Center's Davis Planetarium staff and the Baltimore Astronomical Society will operate telescopes outside the center's Inner Harbor entrance from 11 p.m. until 1:30 a.m. Monday. The eclipse is expected to peak at 12:57 am., hiding 65 percent of the moon's surface. If it rains or the skies are cloudy, don't show up; you'll be alone. Information: 685-5225 or 539-STAR.

* Learn about one of the sea's most ferocious predators free in "Sharks! Fact and Fantasy." This is the Maryland Science Center's newest IMAX Theatre program -- opening Thursday.

The film, another IMAX show about Antarctica, as well as other Science Center exhibits and shows, will be open to the public free from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. This is the first of what is expected to be several free days underwritten in part by WJZ-TV at the Science Center.

Free Day honors the ninth anniversary of astronaut Sally Ride becoming the first American woman in space. Information: 962-0223.

PLAN AHEAD Next Friday marks the start of that weekend's second annual Fells Point Maritime Festival, including a chance to see and visit a dozen smaller, but picturesque, tall ships.

The festival begins at 5 p.m. with a one-hour Parade of Sail by the sailing vessels, ranging from several that call Baltimore home to some representing other cities (more about visiting hours next Saturday morning).

Besides the Parade of Sail, a crab feast at $25 a person is on next Friday evening's card. Information: 752-8632.

* The Maryland State Numismatic Association (coin collectors) will conduct its 20th annual convention and show Friday through Sunday at Festival Hall.

Sunday's schedule: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Information: 244-8078.
