Greek dishes, dancing offered


If you'd like to do a little more than listen to music this weekend, try the Greek Festival at SS. Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church on Riva Road.

The three-day festival -- from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday -- will spotlight Greek food -- lamb dinners, gyros, souvlaki, baklava, loukoumades and finikia -- and Greek jewelry and crafts.

You can also learn how to make Greek dishes, with free cooking demonstrations, and perform Greek folk dancing, also with demonstrations. Children can check out the moon bounce and other games.

Admission is free. Parking is available at the church and at Annapolis High School Friday with shuttle bus service from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. Shuttle bus service will be available all day Saturday and Sunday from the Board of Education parking lot.

Walk for wildlife planned

If you've had all the baklava and dancing you can handle, walk it off at the 5K Walk For Wildlife at the Patuxent Research Refuge National Wildlife Visitor Center.

Travel the trails around the visitors center off Powder Mill Road in Laurel from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday and catch a peek at Canada geese along the trails, frogs in their wetland habitats and maybe even a deer -- if you're very quiet.

No charge is made, but participants may raise money for Friends of the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center who provide maintenance, upkeep and projects on the visitor center trails, by donating money or getting sponsors to pledge money for each kilometer walked.

The first 200 people to register will receive mugs. Those who raise money will be included in drawings to win T-shirts, mugs and books. The grand prize is a hand-carved walking stick.

Information: 301-497-5763.

Jazz performance tomorrow

In the eat-and-be-entertained category, singer Parris Lane puts on a one-woman cabaret show at the King of France Tavern in the Maryland Inn on Main Street in Annapolis at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. tomorrow.

Lane will perform jazz melodies accompanied by pianist Bob Diener and preview her compact disc, "Songs From My Heart," due out in August.
