Goodwill ambassador...


June 04, 1993|By Karen Zeiler


CANADIAN DIPLOMAT: A goodwill ambassador from Nova Scotia beckons you to come aboard this weekend. The Bluenose II -- 161-foot-long, two-masted schooner -- will be open for public tours from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. tomorrow at the Inner Harbor, between the Light Street Pavilion and the Maryland Science Center. Built in 1963, the ship (pictured on the back of the Canadian dime) is a replica of the original 1921 Bluenose, which won a series of international schooner races in the 1920s and 1930s. That ship was lost at sea in 1946.


WATERFRONT WALK: Get a healthy workout tomorrow at the fourth annual Waterfront Walk. Nearly 1,000 people are expected to tackle the course, which extends from Canton to Baltimore's south shore along Key Highway. Sponsored by the Baltimore Harbor Endowment, the six-mile trek features nine "Info-Stops," where volunteers will answer questions about some of the historical sites and new waterfront projects along the route, including the Center for Urban Archaeology, President Street Station and the Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse. Registration begins at 8 a.m., and walkers will meet at 9 a.m. at the Canton Waterfront Park in the 2900 block of Boston St. The walk ends about noon at the HarborView Yacht Club Plaza. Walkers need to register. Fee: $5 in advance at Hoist Running Shoe Stores; $6.50 Saturday for adults; children under 12 free. The fee includes a souvenir and transportation back to Canton either by water taxi or bus. Proceeds benefit the Baltimore Harbor Endowment. Information: 732-8155. LATIN FLAIR: Dance the day away tomorrow and Sunday at the 14th annual Latino Festival at Hopkins Plaza, Charles and Baltimore Streets. Sponsored by the East Baltimore Latino Organization, the festival features food, crafts and music from Honduras, Dominican Republic, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Argentina and Ecuador. Enjoy fruit drinks and the sounds of Latin jazz, JTC salsa and merengue, and a kids' puppet show. Bands include Latin American Folkloric Dance Troop, Rhumba Club (Latin jazz) and La Tentacion (salsa and merengue). Hours: noon to 10 p.m. tomorrow and noon to 8 p.m. Sunday. Information: 732-4919.


SOUNDS OF SUMMER: Mambo Combo's Latin jazz, rock and calypso music kicks off the Beefeater Cool Summer Sounds series from 5:30 to 7:30 tonight at the Harborplace Amphitheatre. The series runs Fridays through July 9. The members of Mambo Combo will be clad in Hawaiian shirts and will be sporting painted-on mustaches. No rain date. If country music is more your style, get set for the Pepsi Country Jamboree. Maria Rose and her Blue Horizon Band open this free concert series at 4 p.m. Sunday at the Harborplace Amphitheater. A different band will perform each Sunday in June. If it rains, the concerts will start at 5:30 p.m. the following Wednesday. Information: 332-4191.
