The Red Baron
The Red Baron Biplanes will barnstorm the Carroll County Regional Airport in Westminster today and tomorrow. The red and white, smoke-trailing, super Stearman planes are original open-air cockpit types and will be available for tours. Visitors will also be able to chat with the pilots and sample some free Red Baron frozen pizza.
The fly-in will benefit the Children's Cancer Foundation. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5: 30 p.m. Admission is free. Bring new and gently read books Saturday to the parking lots of Baltimore Polytechnic Institute and Western High School at Coldspring Lane and Falls Road. Your donation will help fill the shelves of the Baltimore Reads Book Bank, which annually distributes 100,000 books to low-income families. All types of paperback and hardbacks will be accepted. Children's books and books depicting African-American heritage are in high demand.
Festivities at the "Bring-A-Book Day" take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and include a celebration of reading with music and refreshments. Call (410) 752-3595.
