The starting time for tomorrow's St. Patrick's Day parade downtown will be 2 p.m. Because a source provided incorrect information, yesterday's Around the Inner Harbor column reported an earlier time.
The Sun regrets the error.
THIS TIME IT'S A GO
Postponed by the Blizzard of '93, the 39th annual St. Patrick's Day Parade will get a belated kickoff at 1 p.m. Sunday. Enjoy the lilting sounds of the Emerald Isle as the U.S. Naval Academy Band, the Dunloggin Pipe and Drum Band, the Na Fianna Pipe Band and more than 20 marching bands take to the streets. The procession begins at the Washington Monument, travels south on Charles Street, makes a left on Pratt Street and continues to Market Place, where it will disband.
WALK WITH A PURPOSE
Take a walk around the harbor Sunday and help raise money for research into the nerve-wrecking disease, multiple sclerosis. Camden Yards Station is the starting point of one of 11 Maryland sites where you can participate in the MS Super Cities Walk, a nationwide fund-raiser.
Check-in time at the harbor course is from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., with a start time of 9 a.m. Prizes go to those walkers who raise $50 or more in donations. Information: 821-8626.
Find those old coins buried at the bottom of your dresser and take them to Festival Hall for this weekend's Suburban Baltimore Coin Show.
Besides getting appraisals, you can see currency issued during the Colonial period, the Civil War and the opening of the Western frontier. Free admission. Hours: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m Sunday. Information: 244-8088.
Art and music merge at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow at the Top of the World Observation Level of the World Trade Center when the Steven Bundick Jazz Ensemble performs at the closing reception of "From A Woman's Perspective: The Art of African Women."
The exhibit of watercolors, oils and textiles by female artists Belle Massey, Rachel Davis, Olivia Gatewood, Dressler Smith and Sherry Allen has been on display since mid-February.
Admission: $2 for adults, $1 for seniors and children 5 to 15.
