The Great Halloween Lantern Parade

Halloween Parade

catch of the day fish (2)Alright, maybe you don’t even need us to remind you. After all, the Great Halloween Lantern Parade is now as much of a Baltimore institution as the lights on 34th Street. But at the same time, we’d be remiss if we didn’t say it loud and clear: GO! GO! GO! Don’t miss it! The lantern parade is just one of those things that makes one feel all warm and fuzzy and geez-I-love-my-city-ish. It’s free to attend, perfect for kids and adults alike, and you can be as involved (Bring a lantern! Bring five! Dress up! Enter a contest! Volunteer!) or uninvolved (Just show up and spectate!) as you want. Anything goes. Just make sure to come ready for some major good feelings and gorgeous visuals. Read More →

Members of the Garrison Forest School community stand in front of the “Tree of Hope”.

The wind was whipping on Thursday morning as parent volunteers hung hundreds of yards of pink ribbon through the sturdy limbs of a stately tree on the campus of Garrison Forest School. On the ribbon were messages of hope, courage, and remembrance, scrawled by students at the independent all-girls school in Owings Mills. The symbolic gesture was just part of the school community’s broad support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which culminates with the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s Race for the Cure, this Sunday, October 26, 2014 in Hunt Valley. Read More →

Two Baltimore Hospitals Will Deal with Potential Ebola Patients

Ebola scare

First things first: You don’t have Ebola, and you (probably) won’t get it. As Twitter has pointed out, more Americans have been married to Kim Kardashian than have contracted Ebola in the U.S. That said, if you did happen to just return from West Africa and you also happen to be running a fever, you’re going to be treated at one of three Maryland hospitals, two of which are in Baltimore.
