Art and craft shows in Ocean City

Enjoy two shows under one roof this weekend at the Ocean City Convention Center. The 16th annual Nautical & Wildlife Art Festival combines with the 14th annual North American Craft Show, featuring 300 displays by artists and crafts people from 25 states.

Painters, sculptors, carvers, photographers and model-ship builders will present nautical and wildlife art, while crafters display works in wood, metal, fiber, clay, glass, plaster, paper, shells, stones and more. Continuous musical entertainment and food are also offered.

The Convention Center is at Coastal Highway and 40th Street. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admission is $1-$4. Call 800-OC-OCEAN.

Chesapeake Bay lighthouse celebration

Follow the lure of the lighthouse Saturday to the Calvert Marine Museum's fourth annual "Winter Lights: A Celebration of Chesapeake Bay Lighthouses." Throughout the all-day festival at the museum on Solomons Island, visitors can tour Drum Point Lighthouse, one of only three remaining cottage-type screwpile lighthouses in the Chesapeake Bay, and Cove Point Light Station, which has served mariners sailing the Chesapeake Bay and Patuxent River for nearly 170 years. There also will be displays and video tours set up by various organizations representing lighthouses from the upper to lower bay and its tributaries; book signings and slide presentations; and a gingerbread-lighthouse baking contest.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Some activities are free; others, including lighthouse tours, require museum admission of $2-$5. Call 410-326-2042.
