Thanksgiving travelers and shoppers should give a lift to Ocean City's economy in an otherwise slow tourism off-season, a city official said. "For an off-season weekend, it's usually a good weekend for us," said Ocean City spokeswoman Donna Abbott. "It's definitely a more relaxed pace than during the peak season." Although Ocean City - which sits on 10 miles of sandy beach on Maryland's Eastern Shore - has gradually become a permanent, year-round community, most know it as a prime tourist destination.

With chisels, chain saws and a welcome flair for showmanship, Roberts can turn frozen water into just about any shape imaginable. Sunday, at what is billed as Maryland Winterfest 2011 , he and some fellow ice sculptors will be showing off what they can do all in the name of raising money for breast cancer treatment.

Need a teapot, a mug, a platter, a vase, a cookie jar, a box? Or, even if you don't actually need any of the above, maybe you'd like to have something, or give something, from the fourth annual Holiday National Invitational Exhibition, called "Winterfest 1998," that just opened at Clayworks.Functional is the hallmark of this show, and the key word is national - the show's 20 ceramics artists hail from as near as Maryland and Virginia, but also as far as Utah, Colorado, Texas, Minnesota and Montana, with North Carolina, Tennessee and New York in between.
