September 23, 1994|By Holton F. Brown


Need another dose of midways and carnival rides? Visit this weekend's third annual Charm City Fair at Inner Harbor East, Fleet and President streets. That's between Fells Point and Little Italy.

You'll find rides, games, food, live entertainment and exhibits. Also on hand will be more than 80 retail vendors and for the kids, a petting zoo. Proceeds this year go to the Baltimore Harbor Endowment, which has a goal of promoting appreciation and preservation of the harbor environment.

Admission is $7, which includes all rides, entertainment and exhibits. (Look for coupons that'll knock $2 off the price of admission, promoters say.) Parking available at Aliceanna Street and Central Avenue. Hours: 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. today; 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. tomorrow; and noon to 10 p.m. Sunday.


The sixth annual American Youth Hostel Volleyball in the Fall tournament will be held at the Inner Harbor's Rash Field tomorrow and Sunday, beginning each day at 9:30 a.m. No charge to watch; a team fee to compete.

More than 140 teams are signed up to play in what is a fund-raiser for the Baltimore International AYH-Hostel, a nonprofit group that promotes international education and cultural exchange by providing low-cost travel and other programs. The Baltimore hostel has welcomed more than 46,000 visitors from 40 countries since opening in 1984.

In case of rain, the tournament will move to next weekend at a location to be determined. In this event, participants and other interested persons should call the AYH Potomac Area Council at (202) 783-0717 for information.


Things are picking up at The Arena (formerly known as the Civic Center). "Sesame Street Live" will be appearing at 7:30 tonight; 10:30 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., tomorrow; and 1 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., Sunday. Tickets are $9 and $11 and may be obtained at the Arena Box Office, through TicketMaster or by calling 481-SEAT.

On Thursday, Pam Shriver's Signet Tennis Challenge will start at 7:30 p.m. with four top-flight tennis players competing. Todd Martin will be facing Jim Courier for two sets, followed by John McEnroe vs. Brian MacPhie for a single set. This will be followed by a single set of doubles with Courier-McEnroe against Martin-MacPhie.

Tickets range from $75 for Courtside Box to $9 for Upper Reserved. Proceeds benefit the Baltimore Community Foundation, a nonprofit, tax-exempt group that will distribute money to various children's organizations. Tickets can be purchased at The Arena box office and all TicketMaster outlets, including Hecht's. To charge by phone, call (410) 481-SEAT.
