Take your children around the globe with a short trip to Anne Arundel County Community College this weekend for the Chesapeake Children's Museum Rhythms of the World Festival.

Introduce the youngsters to Italian cuisine, El Salvadoran and Japanese fashion, Irish folk tales and Indian crafts at the college in Arnold. There also will be dance with the Anne Arundel Community College Dance Company, games and a silent auction.

The festival runs from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday at the cafeteria. Admission is $5 in advance, $6 at the door.

Art of the dance

Line is the most basic element of art, but some artists can turn a simple line into a dance.

"Dance of the Dune Grass" by Bonnie Roth Anderson is one of the works on display at the Cardinal Gallery at the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts in Annapolis.

The "Expressive Line" exhibit opens with a reception 6 p.m. tomorrow for Anderson, Jack Brumbaugh, Constance Costigan and Betty Vera, whose works appear in the show. The exhibit continues through Nov. 28.

The gallery, at 801 Chase St., is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and Friday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

Information: 410-263-5544.

Musical choices

Oct. 30 brings a number of musical choices to Annapolis audiences as the Naval Academy Band performs "A Chamber Wind Ensemble" and the country rock band Ruthie and the Wranglers throws a party to celebrate the release of a compact disc.

Midshipmen with pairs of oboes, clarinets, bassoons and French horns, will perform "Octet-Partita," "Lyric Piece," and "Serenade for 10 Wind Instruments, Cello and String Bass" at 8 p.m. at Anne Arundel Community College's Humanities Building lecture hall.

The band concert is free.

Information: 410-293-0263.

Ruthie and the Wranglers will celebrate at 9: 30 p.m. at Rudy's Tavern, 1773 Generals Highway, with a few songs from their second CD, "Life's Savings."

The Remnants, an Annapolis-area band, will open what Ruthie and the Wranglers promise will be a raucous, roadhouse show.

Information: 301-849-8058.

A haunted tour

Treat yourself to an unusual Halloween trick next weekend with a ghost tour of historic London Town in Edgewater.

"Ghosts of the Past," three original vignettes, is a combination of theater and history, entertainment and education as actors give tours and a detailed history of the 18th-century merchant village.

The show will be presented from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Oct. 29-31. Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for children 12 and younger. The program is not recommended for children younger than 7.
