Meet the real Hercules

Beginning this Saturday, the Walters Art Gallery will offer free family tours every weekend in April.

These guided tours invite families to follow the adventures of the Greek hero Hercules by discovering paintings and sculptures that depict him in action.

The works to be examined are a part of the museum's permanent collection.

The Hercules tours begin at noon at the gallery, 600 N. Charles St., and will be held every Saturday in April. The subject matter and presentation will appeal to children ages 6 to 10. Interested families should meet the Weekend Family Guide at the Walters' Centre Street entrance. For more information, call (410) 547-9000. Alvin of the singing trio Alvin and the Chipmunks will make an appearance at the Westview Mall on Saturday.

The music of this lovable trio of cartoon chipmunks will be featured in three sing-along sessions throughout the day.

Each show will be followed by "meet and greet" sessions, in which each child will have a chance to meet Alvin.

Kids will receive an Alvin Coloring Activity Book, and 25 children will receive Alvin and the Chipmunk cassette tapes.

Westview Mall is at 5748 Baltimore National Pike. The Alvin and the Chipmunks sing-alongs will take place in the Value City Court at 1 p.m., 2: 30 p.m. and 4: 30 p.m. For more information, call (410) 744-5650.
