SEAFOOD FESTIVAL

CRAB PICKING AND GRINNING

It's a man-eat-crab world. And this weekend, it's a celebration of the feisty crustacean at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels. Crab Days, the annual salute to the Maryland blue crab, takes place Saturday and Sunday in and around the museum. Come hungry and enjoy steamed crabs, crab cakes, crab soup and other savory foods from Chesapeake Seafood Caterers. (Non-seafood lovers will have plenty of choices as well.) Save time for crabbing demonstrations, boat rides, live music, book-signings, arts events, kids activities and lots more.

Crab Days run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday in and around the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, 213 N. Talbot St., St. Michaels. Rain or shine. Tickets are $11; $10 seniors; $6 ages 6-17; free for ages 5 and younger, and include admission to the museum's 10 exhibit buildings. Food and boat rides are extra.

ETHNIC FESTIVAL

INDULGE YOUR INNER GERMAN

You don't have to be of German heritage to have a grand time at the 106th German Festival this weekend in Timonium. Even if your only German word is Gesundheit, they'll still let you in.

This year's festival, taking place at the Maryland State Fairgrounds (it was previously held at Carroll Park), is presented by the German-American Citizens Association of Maryland and is a celebration of Baltimoreans' German ancestry. With music from German bands, folk dancing, crafts and collectibles, soccer and climbing walls for the kids and lots of German foods and beverages, the festival will be a sehr gut time for all.

.......................

The festival runs from noon to 10 p.m. Saturday and from noon to 8 p.m. Sunday at the Maryland State Fairgrounds, 2200 York Road, Timonium. $5; $4 seniors; free for ages younger than 12 with a paying adult. Call 410-522-4144 or visit www.md-germans.org.
