'Pilgrims' to greet passengers this week; steel band to play
Passengers traveling through Baltimore-Washington International Airport this holiday week may encounter performers dressed as Pilgrims who will circulate through the terminal sharing their Thanksgiving experiences. Part of BWI's entertainment program, the "Pilgrims" will speak with passengers using idioms common in 1620.
The performers will appear from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, as well as Nov. 25 and Nov. 30. Also on Wednesday, St. Veronica's Youth Steel Orchestra will play seasonal music. Performances will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the upper level of the Observation Gallery.
The orchestra will return to the airport Nov. 30, and Dec. 7, 14 and 21.
Leave gifts unwrapped for easy security checks
In this season of gift-giving, BWI officials recommend passengers leave gifts unwrapped for security checks.
Also, if passengers have medical conditions that require them to carry needles and/or syringes in carry-on baggage, they are required to also have with them the medication that requires such an injection.
