Baltimore's Board of Estimates on Wednesday approved a Bavarian-style Christmas Village to be open daily at the Inner Harbor's West Shore Park from Thanksgiving through Christmas. It will feature some 60 vendors, traditional German food and even a visit from Christkind (a blond-haired angel who's the German version of Santa Claus). Most vendors - about 40 - will be housed in a giant tent to be pitched in the park, with 20 or so more set up at booths outside. The village's anchor will be Kathe Wohlfahrt, who specializes in handcrafted wooden holiday ornaments and collectibles.

For the first time in about a decade, outdoor ice skating could return to the Inner Harbor with the creation of a temporary rink at McKeldin Square. Baltimore's spending panel approved an agreement Wednesday with the Waterfront Partnership, which hopes a temporary rink will bring more city residents and visitors to the harbor during the slower winter months. But the nonprofit must raise $250,000 by Labor Day to pull off the plans. Other efforts to revive skating at the harbor have failed since an outdoor rink at Rash Field in Federal Hill was closed when its aging equipment could not keep the ice cold enough.
