Jungle Book'

See the classic tale of the "Jungle Book" as it comes to the Hannah More Arts Center of St. Timothy's School this weekend and next. The Pumpkin Theatre presents the story of the young boy who is raised by wolves in the wild and learns to live by the laws of the jungle. This lively production of the Rudyard Kipling tale brings together singing, dancing, drumming and audience participation.

Performances will be this Saturday and Sunday and next Saturday and Sunday at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. A sign language interpreter will be at this Sunday's shows. The school is on Greenspring Avenue, one mile north of Beltway Exit 22 in Stevenson. Tickets are $7 in advance and $8 at the door. Call (410) 323-9316.

Look high into the afternoon sky and watch model rockets soar through the air at the Goddard Space Visitor Center in Greenbelt Sunday. Learn the principles of rocketry from the staff. Bring your own single-stage model rocket with engine up to size D for blastoff. Or just watch the flights.

Supported by NASA as a safe, supervised hands-on demonstration of rocket science, the Goddard Model Rocket Launch is the oldest in the country, having launched more than 20,000 model rockets since 1976.

Blastoff begins at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Goddard Space Flight Center's Visitor Center, located off Explorer Road in Greenbelt. Free. Call (301) 286-8981.

Tired of the same old lunch crowd? Follow the trail of peanuts from the Baltimore Arena to Lexington Market today as the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus elephants parade down the city streets from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Music, Ringling Brothers clowns and a massive feast await the 20 pachyderms at Lexington Market, while you're invited to lunch with them -- on your own food, that is.

Participate in the canned food drive 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Lexington Market's Arcade Stage and receive discounts. Festivities today are free. Call (410) 685-6169.
