This is the last full weekend before Christmas, the last chance to check out some of the great holiday stuff around town.
In addition to the ongoing things I mentioned last week (like Holiday Festival of Toys and Trains at the B&O Railroad Museum or the massive train display at the Shops at Kenilworth), there's the essential Miracle on 34th Street in Hamden (pictured), which was recognized by AOL Travel as one of the "10 Best Christmas Light Displays in the U.S."
Also, the Waterfront Partnership has done a great job with the "It's a Waterfront Life" series of events and promotions around the holidays. For one thing, there's the amazing Christmas light show projected onto the Power Plant building on Friday and Saturday nights at 6, 7, 8, and 9 pm (follow the link to see a video). Also, on Sunday from Noon to 5pm, Harbor East will hold it's Let It Snow Celebration, featuring ice carvings, holiday music, and strolling entertainment. Go here for a full list of "It's a Waterfront Life" activities.
Also, on Saturday at 11 am, Baltimore's Choral Arts Society will present its Christmas for Kids program at Goucher's Kraushaar Auditorium, featuring Pepito the Clown, Rodney the Reindeer and, of course, Santa.
