This year’s theme Myths and Monsters, indicating a Chessie sighting may be in the offing.

The event is right at the intersection of art and ingenuity, with teams building big moving sculptures that can take to the streets. But it’s also an obstacle course, so it’s not guaranteed that everyone will emerge unscathed.

As such, the American Visionary Art Museum event puts a different spin on winning, with awards going for the most memorable breakdown, next-to-last and the best sock creature on the course.

It gets underway from AVAM in Federal Hill around 10 a.m. before winding around the harbor to Southeast Baltimore by early afternoon. Highlights on that side of town include the splash down in Canton Waterfront Park and the dreaded mud and sand pits of Patterson Park.
