Looking like a lovely weekend, with lots to do....
Saturday will be a beautiful day for the last day of the Howard County Fair, with all kinds of rides, animals, crafts, and contests.
If you're in an agriculture kind of mood, but don't feel like schlepping to Howard County (or you're not free until Sunday), there's also Kayam Farm's second annual Tu B'Av Love & Music Fest. As I've said before, we really dig the Jewish hippie vibe at this organic communal Jewish farm. Check it out at some point.
Determined to get to a farm? Clark's Elioak Farm in Ellicott City is marking its 56th birthday with a party featuring fairy tale characters, story times, and face-painting, in addition to the great petting zoo and Enchanted Forrest.
The weather may not cooperate on Sunday, so may we also suggest the Maryland Science Center's Backyard Science Days (above), which actually runs both Saturday and Sunday and includes all kinds of animals and plants from the area, along with projects, like stomp rockets, that you can try at home.
