CELEBRATE AFRICAN-AMERICAN LIFE

AFRAM Expo '93 starts at noon today at Festival Hall. One of the city's oldest and liveliest ethnic festivals, AFRAM has live entertainment, vendors selling food, cultural clothing and jewelry, and lots to do for children. The three-day event will also salute the Baltimore City Classroom Teacher: The Golden Fruit in the Garden of Education. Tomorrow's festivities will include a parade ending at Festival Hall. A "Gospelfest" featuring the Clark Sisters, the Tri City Mass Choir and other performers will help wrap up AFRAM on Sunday. For information and tickets for the gospel performances: 832-1730. Tickets for AFRAM can be purchased in advance by calling 732-7588 or at the gate.

Baltimore will be the site of another festival Saturday to showcase environmental education, music, food and fun for the family. EnvironJam '93 will take over the grounds of the Point Breeze Industrial Park near Dundalk from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Besides environmental information about topics ranging from air pollution to recycling, the jazz sounds of Crab Towne and the acoustic folk music of Terra Nova and other musical groups will highlight the festival. It's all free. Information: Maryland Department of the Environment, [410] 631-3001.

PLAY IN A PARK

Take the family to an old-fashioned day in the park along the banks of the Patapsco River Sunday. Model-boat making and kite-flying will be on the agenda from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Middle Branch Park, 3301 Waterview Ave., off Hanover Street. The city's Department of Recreation and Parks is sponsoring the afternoon. Information: 396-3838.

CIRCUS UNDER TENTS

The 1993 edition of the Bentley Brothers International Three-Ring Circus will take three tents to contain the fun.
