GRAY:You can explore a U.S. Navy tank-landing...


February 11, 1994


You can explore a U.S. Navy tank-landing ship tomorrow. The USS Harlan County, a 520-footer, will be docked this weekend at the West Wall of the Inner Harbor, near Phillip's Harborplace Restaurant.

The vessel was commissioned in 1972 and primarily transports tanks and vehicles that cannot be airlifted. The ship, visiting the city at the behest of a convention of minority engineers, will be open to the public from noon to 4 p.m. tomorrow. Information: 837-4636.

January was the month for auto shows in town. This weekend, motorcycle fanciers get their turn. Bikes of every description will be at Festival Hall for the 11th annual International Motorcycle Show.

You can dream among about 300 new, vintage and custom bikes, not to mention dozens of accessories and other motorcycle displays and information for on- and off-road cycling. If your valentine isn't the roses-and-candy type, maybe a selection from the Harley-Davidson jewelry collection will be just the thing.

Hours are 6 p.m. to midnight today, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. tomorrow and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. Information: (301) 864-7678.


Take your valentine ice-skating at the Rash Field rink Monday, where the price will be 2-for-1 all day. The rink will be open Monday from noon to 2 p.m. and from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The Inner Harbor Ice Skating Rink will have other specials this month. Elementary, middle or high school students bringing in a report card sporting at least one A will be honored with a free skating session, and on Feb. 20, on the eve of Presidents Day, skaters may shave a dollar off the regular $3.75 admission price. Information: 385-0675.


Coming next weekend to the Convention Center is the annual American Craft Council Craft Fair. More than 600 artists and designers will be in town. Details next week.
