Get up & Go! Free Fall Baltimore isn’t over yet!

There’s still time to take advantage of some of the 300+ free events this month that make up Free Fall Baltimore! Up early today? Head down to the Central Library for their Imagination Celebration. It’s the grand opening of their interactive exhibit based on the work of children’s author Maurice Sendak!

And tomorrow is Free Family Sunday at the BMA, where families can explore the museum and enjoy special educational and art-making programs for kids!

Then bring the kids (or not) for the Creative Alliance’s Birds & BUS Block Party this evening. There will be dance, neighborhood activities, and a screening of Hitchcock’s The Birds.

Looking for something a bit more amateur for your weekend cinema? You’re in luck, because it’s National Home Movie Day. The University of Baltimore will screen locals’ home movies today from 2pm-4pm. Bring your own, or just settle in to watch others’.

And don’t forget about the Harbor Harvest Festival tomorrow, where you can get lost in a hay maze, pick a pumpkin, and enjoy all the rest of your fall staples right here in the heart of the city.
