Get Up & Go: Preakness, Ports, and More!

    Share the News


    May is in full bloom. Get out this weekend with some of our city’s most beloved traditions, or start your own. But whatever you do, make the most of it!

    Start the weekend off joining 100,000 of your fellow horse fans watching the 140th Preakness Stakes today. Some of our top contender names this year? Derby winner American Pharoah, Dortmund, Firing Line, and of course Danzig Moon.

    Prefer to celebrate Preakness away from the stands and closer to the clothes racks? Cupcake boutique in Green Spring Station has been having a pre-Preakness sale all week, but it extends through today! Don’t miss it!

    If you’d rather get truly out and about today (and far, far, away from all horse-related activities), you could participate in Slow Food Baltimore’s Wild Bounty foraging walk and discover the wild foods that are all around you!

    Tomorrow is PortFest— a national maritime expo taking place around Pier 13. The event is free, and there’s free parking as well– with plenty for kids and adults alike.

    For more to do with kids, The Walters is hosting free sculpture making workshops from 10am-3pm today and tomorrow. Kids ages 3 and up can create their own masterpiece to take home out of everyday objects like clay, foil, and more!
