The nip in the air must mean it’s time to prep for the holidays, and especially Thanksgiving. Good thing there are plenty of prep activities, including free parking for pre-holiday sales, a tacky sweater bar crawl, a pre-Thanksgiving race, and one big decorating party in Fells Point. This weekend will cheer you up!
Beginning November 19, show $100 of receipts plus a parking voucher to participating Harbor East garages and receive up to 5 hours of free parking. You can take advantage of free spaces after 5 p.m. on weekdays and between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. on weekends.
A tacky sweater bar crawl is invading Fell’s Point and Canton this weekend at a bar near you. Pull those regretful sweaters out of your basement on November 22, then head to registration at Bad Decisions (1928 Fleet Street, Fells Point) at 6 p.m. There will also be buttons: $10 for a collectible button and $25 for all 5 buttons. Locations include Bad Decisions, Kisling’s Tavern, Myth and Moonshine, Bartenders, and Castaways. A 50/50 raffle is a definite, with possibly other raffles for cool prizes.
Help Decorate Fell’s Point
Now’s your chance to contribute to the quaint, Christmas feel that is part of Fell’s Point Main Street’s Olde Tyme Christmas celebration: help them decorate! Meet in Broadway Square at 9 a.m. on Sunday, November 21 and bring a tall ladder or staple gun if you have one. Local businesses can bring a ‘handmade’ ornament that best represents the spirit of their business.
Pre-Thanksgiving 5K for Good
On Sunday, November 23, get in the Thanksgiving mood (and shed some pre-Thanksgiving pounds) with a race that benefits autism research. The Turkey Tumble for Autism 5k and 10k will benefit the Organization for Autism Research. Races will be held within the limits of Patterson Park, located in Baltimore, MD. Come enjoy this great race before Thanksgiving. Race Start Times are 9 a.m. for the 10k ($45) and 10 a.m. for the 5k ($30).
