AROUND THE INNER HARBOR

October 23, 1992|By Karen Zeiler

HAUNTINGS:

Come face-to-face with the ghost of a woman whose hair got caught in a machine. Or you might brush up against others whose negligent use of machinery cost them limbs. These and other ghastly apparitions will be your guides at the Baltimore Museum of Industry's Haunted Museum Tour Sunday through Tuesday and again next Thursday and Friday. These spirits of victims of historic industrial accidents offer a chilling lesson in occupational safety. Admission: $5 for adults, $3 for children under 12. Organizers advise against bringing children younger than 6. Address: 1415 Key Highway.

See the restored 1906 tugboat S.S. Baltimore today through Sunday at the Baltimore Museum of Industry's waterfront festival, Bounty on the Bay. This is the last event in the city's festival, Baltimore on the Bay.Once a VIP vessel for the mayor of Baltimore, the fascinating relic helped sustain the port, moving pile drivers, towing barges and breaking ice. Between trips to and from the Inner Harbor area, the tug will dock in front of the museum. Public tours will not be available, unfortunately.You'll find music and plenty to eat -- with free samples of wine, nachos and apples -- from 11 a.m to 5 p.m. Sunday at the Bounty on the Bay FestivalThere will be demonstrations of oyster shucking, net making and sheep shearing.

* How do they get those tiny ships into bottles with tinier necks? Local enthusiasts provide the answer in a ships-in-bottles workshop from noon to 3 p.m. tomorrow at the Top of the World Observation Level of the World Trade Center. The workshop coincides with a Top of the World exhibition of model ships, including work boats of the Chesapeake Bay and world-famous sailing vessels. Admission: $2 for adults, $1 for children 5 to 15 and seniors. Children under 5, free.
