The forecast is calling for snow this weekend, but there’s still plenty of reasons to venture out, like festivals featuring creative takes on ice, seafood and German culture. Or, head to the Parkway and sing along with Queen. Here’s the weekend schedule:
As we start off 2019, take a look at some of the work being created in the city, whether it’s public art or SpongeBobs. Or, take in a regularly scheduled dance night in the neighborhood. On Sunday, the attention turns to M&T Bank Stadium for the Ravens’ playoff return.
It’s the weekend between the holidays, and the celebrations keep rolling. Kwanzaa arrives in Charm City with a special celebration. Elsewhere, laugh off the Christmas spirit or dance your way into 2019.
It’s about the time of year when people start getting their lasts in–last-minute shopping, last turns of the year and last looks back. There’s plenty of that this weekend, whether it’s a final holiday market or a tree lighting. But mostly, it’s a time to celebrate. So get dressed up for a winter formal or take the time to gather with others to sing the carols. It’s all on the menu this weekend:
The final countdown before the holidays is here, and that means it’s time to celebrate. Head out to SantaCon, see lots of tubas perform the seasonal hits or enjoy a Harbor Spectacular on Sunday. For those still shopping, there are plenty of art markets and spots to grab goods from local creators. And in the welcoming spirit, don’t miss the Refugee and Immigrant Arts Feast on Sunday. Here’s the rundown:
For those who haven’t started their shopping, this weekend might be a good chance to give it a try. Baltimore’s neighborhoods are adding a festive mood to finding a gift, from Federal Hill to Highlandtown. And there are plenty of makers markets in breweries, gardens and other public gathering points. Elsewhere, celebrate the Rawlings Conservatory’s 130th anniversary or don a mask for Krampuslauf in Hampden.
Martin Millspaugh, a former journalist with the Evening Sun who later helped orchestrate the redevelopment of Charles Center and the Inner Harbor, has died. He was 92.
As the CEO of Charles Center Inner Harbor Management, Inc. starting in 1965, Millspaugh shepherded the project to revitalize a 33-acre plot on the western side of downtown, eventually leading to the construction or renovation of more than two dozen buildings, at a time when people and businesses were fleeing the city.
In the next decade, Millspaugh would work with developer James Rouse to convert the area around the waterfront, which had mostly been used for shipping, into a central tourist attraction. Rouse built the pavilions that make up Harborplace, a marketplace of food stalls and shops that many cities soon tried to replicate.
He went on to lead a formidable development career during which he consulted on projects in 90 cities on five continents.
A memorial service is scheduled for Dec. 15 at 1 p.m.. at the Church of the Redeemer. The family is asking for donations to be made to the Waterfront Partnership in his name.
In 2011, Millspaugh was featured on our site as part of a feature called “Eight Over 80,” highlighting seniors “who still live life to the fullest.” Below is the transcript from Millspaugh’s entry.
On Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, there are plenty of ways to shop without going to the mall in the suburbs. From pop-up shops to Main Street celebrations to breweries, grab free food and drink while the season is young. Or, get out on a hike and catch some new music. Enjoy:
This is your first call for the holidays. It’s the weekend to take the initial pass and get into some of the attractions before the hubbub. Plus, plenty of chances to start shopping. Elsewhere, check out Oyfest and see new exhibits at BMA’s Art After Hours.
