Who’s up for a party, Italian-style? This weekend, Baltimore’s Little Italy lights up and gets festive, celebrating the Feast of St. Gabriele with food, music, games, vino and more.
The party takes place from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, August 18 and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday, August 19 at the intersection of High and Stiles Streets in Little Italy. The festival is a fundraiser for St. Leo the Great Church – admission is a $1 donation.
It’s summertime in the city – and that means tons of fun activities for locals and visitors of all ages. From outdoor movies to family-friendly museum exhibits to evening booze cruises, here’s a look at some of the best activities downtown Baltimore has to offer this summer:
Catch a Flick
On Fridays during July or August, the Open Air Film Festival descends upon Little Italy. The films, which are screened on the side of Ciao Bella Restaurant, include classics with an Italian twist, like The Godfather and the original Ocean’s Eleven. Get there early, with chairs, to grab a good spot (and some great carry-out to enjoy).
Have an electric vehicle? Thinking about buying one? There are plenty of reasons to drive electric, from environmental to financial considerations.
One up side of driving an electric vehicle is the ability to charge your car while it’s parked. In Baltimore, Harbor Park Garage has partnered with the ChargePoint network; the garage now has stations that allow up to four electric vehicles (EVs) to charge at one time.
ChargePoint is an organization that designs and builds EV charging stations that customers can use finding an easy mobile app. The app allows customers to track fuel and greenhouse gas savings, find charging spots and coordinate the charge at one of the charging stations.
As some of you know, Harbor Park Garage serves the Inner Harbor area when it comes to inner harbor parking, especially with the surrounding neighborhoods.
