BALTIMORE ON THE BAY:

Keep the kids amused all day tomorrow at the fourth annual Kids on the Bay Festival at Rash Field. This is one in a series of events that constitutes a celebration of the city's maritime traditions called Baltimore on the Bay.

Kite flying, face-painting, storytelling, a nature exhibit and arts and crafts activities are featured from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Staffers from the Cloisters Children's Museum will help kids color and create windsocks, boats and more.

At 8 p.m., watch a new event, the city's From the Sea Parade. Gigantic illuminated balloon sea creatures -- including Chester, a 35-foot-tall sea monster, a starfish, a sea horse and tropical fish -- will be tethered to lighted yachts that will parade from the HarborView Marina and Yacht Club, 1225 Key Highway, to the Inner Harbor, to Fells Point and back.
