This Saturday, Pigtown's proud, snouty namesakes will take to the street. More than a dozen oinkers will plod down Washington Boulevard twice that day, as part of the annual Pigtown Festival. It's a chance for the neighborhood to revel in its past - when pigs were driven down the roads to the slaughterhouses - and exhibit its growing development. This year, the festival outgrew its former venue on McHenry Street, and organizers moved it to the 700-900 blocks of Washington Blvd. "We felt that it would be appropriate that we move the festival to kind of the natural point of convergence for Pigtown, which is Washington Boulevard, which is the neighborhood's main street," said Jack Danna, the director of Pigtown Main Street, the organization that presents the festival.

Danna Thomas, the grand-prize winner of the Anne Arundel County Regional Science Fair, is fascinated by radiation. This is a phenomenon, she points out, that can cure cancer, but also cause it. Danna, 16, a junior at Broadneck High School, hopes to be an oncologist, though she's not sure yet if she wants to focus on research or treatment. Meanwhile, she's been busy studying the effects of radiation on cells. Last year, that interest earned her second prize in the county's regional science fair.
