The organizers of Johns Hopkins University's student-run Spring Fair 2010 want Baltimoreans to look on the three-day festival as something of a giant open house. "It's really unique, in that we can invite the whole Baltimore community to our campus, to showcase what we have to offer," says executive co-chairman Zachary Senders, a senior biology major from Philadelphia. "I think that's the best part, that we open our doors to everyone." Beginning at noon Friday, there's nary a square foot of space on Hopkins' 130-acre Homewood campus that isn't rolling out the welcome mat in one way or another.

The last time Johns Hopkins freshman Gracie Golden rode in a shopping cart before Saturday was during her toddler years in a grocery store - and those carts weren't covered in duct tape or pushed at breakneck speed while she held on for dear life. Golden, a member of student radio station WJHU, joined her colleagues and other groups of students in Saturday's Red Bull Chariot Races, an uncanny but festive collegiate event that the energy drink maker holds on campuses nationwide each year.

When a group strolling down Park Avenue yesterday asked where they could get lunch, they were whisked inside Grace & St. Peter's Episcopal Church and Day School to the annual Spring Fair, where international fare competed with all-American hot dogs and fresh lemonade. Brightly colored murals and life-size canvas figures hung on the Baltimore school's iron fence. Children danced and played games in the courtyard while their parents meandered among booths selling flowers, gently used uniforms and freshly baked cakes.

Mary Martin thumbed through a stack of postcards. When she got to a card that depicted a building at Aberdeen Proving Ground during World War II, she flipped it over and read the words scrawled on the back. "This one is a note from a boy to his mom as he went to Jacksonville, Fla., for training during World War II," said Martin, 41. "I love reading the notes that tell what happened here, or what people from a century ago thought about this area." Martin was perusing postcards -- from her collection of more than 10 million -- to make display boards depicting locations throughout the county, for the Spring Chesapeake Postcard Fair that she is hosting in Havre de Grace on April 4 and April 5. A well known deltiologist, Martin has coordinated the show that will include about 30 dealers from 12 states, and more than 1,000 collectors from around the world.
