Fun times in Baltimore in July!

Monday, June 21st, 2010

This July, there are so many different exciting things going on in Baltimore that the whole month is virtually a celebration, not just Independence Day!

On Friday, July 2 and Saturday, July 3, there will be a celebration all day for the 30th Anniversary of Harborplace. This celebration will include live music, a fashion show, a 1980’s costume contest, walking tours, and much more entertainment that is fun for people of all ages. Also taking place at Harborplace on Saturday, July 3 from 1-2 pm will be a crab eating contest at Phillips Seafood Harborplace. This will surely be a fun activity to watch, but especially to participate in!

It’s also that time of year again for Little Italy’s Open Air Film Festival! For those who aren’t already familiar with this event, during July and August each Friday night, you can enjoy live music starting at 7pm and them watch a free film outside projected on the side of one of the buildings in Little Italy at 9pm. All you have to bring is a lawn chair to sit on and you’re all set for a fun night! The films are shown at the corner of High and Stiles Streets which is within walking distance if you are staying with us at the 1840s Carrollton Inn. The first film will be shown on Friday, July 2, and it will be Moonstruck, the Italian-American classic! To see the rest of the movies scheduled to be shown in July and August, visit Little Italy’s website.

Festivals this weekend in Baltimore!

Friday, June 11th, 2010

This weekend, June 11-13, Baltimore will be teeming with exciting festivals that will be fun for people of all ages!

For the proud Baltimoreans out there and also for the people who would like to see what it’s like to live in Baltimore, Honfest is the perfect place to experience “Bawlmer” at its finest! Honfest is an extremely fun and whimsical celebration of all things Baltimore including the neighborhoods, dialects, and people of Baltimore, especially including their favorite and most commonly used term of endearment, “hon.” This festival will take place all day on Saturday, June 12 and Sunday, June 13 at 36th Street in Hampden. Attendees will be able to enjoy live music, classic Baltimore foods, eclectic shops, and festivities at the Glamour Lounge. Honfest is sure to be a great time, but don’t forget your beehive hairdo and feather boa, hon!

To celebrate the summer solstice, Harbor East is hosting the Harbor East Solstice Celebration on Saturday, June 12 from 10am-8pm on the waterfront. You can enjoy a fun, relaxing day with live music, shopping, and dining.

Also, for those people who are proud of their heritage or like to experience the foods, traditions, and celebrations of other cultures, both the Feast of St. Anthony Italian Festival in Little Italy and the St. Nicholas Greek Folk Festival at the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church would be great festivals to attend. The Feast of St. Anthony Italian Festival will take place at Exeter and Stiles Streets on Saturday, June 12 and Sunday, June 13 from noon to 8pm. At the festival, you will be able to enjoy live music, delicious Italian food, wine, game wheels, vendors, and much more! The St. Nicholas Greek Folk Festival will take place at the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church at 520 South Ponca Street on Friday, June 11 from 11am-11pm, Saturday, June 12 from noon-11pm, and Sunday, June 13 from noon-10pm. This festival will include a showcase of the Greek community including dancing, costumes, and traditional foods.

So, if you come to Baltimore this weekend, you will be sure to have a great time with all of the festivities that are happening so close to the 1840s Carrollton Inn!

Our boys of summer are home and hosting the New York Yankees for a three-game series followed by the New York Mets for another three (6/8 – 6/13/10)  While I myself am a loyal Oriole’s fan (win or lose!), we welcome all of you New Yorkers and invite you spend a gorgeous summer weekend with us in Baltimore.  Highs in the 80s with sunshine and blue skies!

Rooms and suites are still available… and we’re family friendly so bring the kids for an All-American weekend.  Book now and reserve our “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” package to receive a bag full of ballpark snacks for game day and two complimentary combo tickets to the Babe Ruth Museum and Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards when you reserve any room or suite at regular rate.  I’ll be at Sunday’s game in my O’s tee with a Boog’s BBQ in hand and hope to see you there!
