Ladies and gentlemen, that time of year is upon us. Love is in the air this weekend for that special holiday adorned in red and pink.

The First Annual Shades of Red Fun Run & Crawl will take place at The Annapolis Towne Centre to help raise awareness for heart health month. Participants in this free event are encouraged to wear red and can purchase up to four beverage tickets for $1 each during registration. Those tickets allot them a free draft beer or house wine that night only. Stop by for more race info.

Speaking of cardio, the Severna Park Community Center will offer Heartbeat for Health, a four-hour event promoting heart health on Saturday at 10 a.m. This event will help promote positive lifestyle changes and offers health screenings, samplings of healthy snacks as well as exercise and dance demonstrations.

The Joe Alterman Trio will be performing upbeat jazz at the Academy Art Museum in Easton on Valentine’s night at 8 p.m.

If you love to sing but aren’t particularly good at it, hire a singing Valentine for your sweetheart on Friday or Saturday, thanks to Chesapeake Harmony Chorus. Visit or 410-647-0401 to find out how to sweep your significant other off their feet through the power of song.
