Saturday, November 6
Maritime Republic of Eastport's Annual Tug of War. This annual rite of late-fall will include five tug competitions held across the Gulf of Eastport (a.k.a.: Spa Creek). Tug teams are made up of competing businesses, service organizations and anyone else feeling the need to "tug it out". Concurrent with the action will be Tugfest, a street festival held in Eastport. The Tugfest is a combination of vendors, children's activities and live music. Admission to the event is free and food and drink are available for purchase.
Also, this year, for the first time ever, Annapolis will host its own party at Susan Campbell Park, complete with the first Crabcake Cookoff and Army-Navy Tug, along with a full slate of entertainment. Proceeds from the Annapolis side benefit local charities including: Hospice of the Chesapeake, We Care and Friends, Foodlink Foodbank, and the Eastport Girls Club, among others. At Eastport and downtown Annapolis. 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Free. Themre.org 410-916-6400.
