Baseball and bull

The fall season has come and nearly gone without the Fall Classic. If you're among those whose life seems empty without the World Series, here's a chance to put some baseball back into it. Today from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. the Babe Ruth Birthplace Foundation is holding a bull roast at the Fifth Regiment Armory. Chow down on Oriole Park ribs and then try out the batting cages. (You might want to wipe the sauce from the ribs off your hands first. You bat better that way.) There will also be music and dancing along with a chance to talk with past and present O's types such as Tippy Martinez, Paul Blair, Mike Flanagan and Chuck Thompson. Proceeds benefit the Babe Ruth Museum.

Baseball, Babe and Bull, Fifth Regiment Armory, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 20. Tickets are $30. Call (410) 727-1539.

Dollar Day

Grab the kids, call your in-laws, round up the neighbors and head to the National Aquarium in Baltimore on Dec. 3. Why? Because it's Dollar Day, and that means everyone, and we do mean everyone, gets in for only one buck. Hey, that's more than 90 percent off the regular admission price. (Do the math yourself, if you don't believe me.) Besides the incredible variety of marine life to see at the aquarium, there are also the Rain Forest and the ultra-cool laser show, "ImaginOcean."

Dollar Day, National Aquarium in Baltimore, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Dec. 3. Admission is $1. Call (410) 576-3800.

It's one of the prettiest parades around town -- the annual lighted boat parade, this year to be held on Dec. 3. Boats decked out in twinkling holiday lights will circle the Inner Harbor basin starting at 6 p.m. It may seem a little early for the holiday season, but, hey, Christmas cards have been in stores since summer.

Seventh Annual Lighted Boat Parade, Inner Harbor basin, 6 p.m. Dec. 3. Free. Call (410) 837-4636.

Speaking of lots of lights, the Kennedy Krieger Institute's Festival of Trees will feature more than 100 dazzlingly illuminated holiday trees. This arboreal event takes place from Nov. 23-27 at the Timonium Fairgrounds and benefits disabled children served the institute. Kids of all ages can ogle trees in the Enchanted Woods, play games in the Children's Wonderland, ride on the Magical Holiday Carousel, eat treats at the bake shop and purchase holiday gifts from a number of specialty shops.

Festival of Trees, Timonium Fairgrounds, 2200 York Road, Nov. 23-27. Admission is $6 for adults, $3 for senior citizens and children under 12. Call (410) 550-9793.

If you have an event for this calendar, please send typed information and a photograph (if possible) five weeks in advance to Here & There, Sun Magazine, 501 N. Calvert St., Baltimore, Md. 21278.
