All eyes are on Old Hilltop, as the Preakness Stakes brings lots of visitors to town for the weekend’s largest draw. But don’t sleep on chances to get out for a farmer’s market kickoff, birding or a bike tour of West Baltimore.

Note: With all the inclement weather expected this weekend, please check with the venue for any scheduling changes.
