Now you see it

Experience magic firsthand with local performer Josh Norris at the Howard County Center for the Arts tomorrow and Saturday.

The show will feature magic with money, fire extinguishers, bowling balls and the "Card Stab," in which the blindfolded Norris selects three cards with darts.

Members of the audience can volunteer for several interactive tricks and witness ordinary objects that disappear, re-appear and levitate in their own hands.

The show is tomorrow at 8 p.m. and Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Howard County Center for the Arts, 8510 High Ridge Road. $10. Call 443-992-3108 or visit www.joshnorris.com for information and tickets.

Go fish

Grab your gear and head to Lake Waterford on Saturday for the Kids' Fishing Derby, a fishing competition sponsored by the Pasadena Sportfishing and the Friends of Lake Waterford Park.

The derby is Saturday 8:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. at Lake Waterford Park, 830 Pasadena Road. $2 per child. Call 410-222-6248 for information.
