Are you looking for something to do this weekend? Don’t feel like fighting the traffic to get to the beach or just want something fun for you and the family to do together without traveling for hours? Well, here’s your answer. Head to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and check out the “Star Spangled Sailabration.”

The “Star-Spangled Sailabration” marks the start of Maryland’s three year commemoration of the bicentennial of the War of 1812. The weeklong event began on June 13th and will run through the 19th. Baltimore’s Inner Harbor will be home to an international parade of more than 40 tall ships and 12 naval vessels from 12 Countries. The event offers plenty to keep you entertained and busy featuring free tours of the ships, waterside festivities, an airshow featuring the famous Blue Angels and much more.

The weather this weekend couldn’t be more perfect for this event with daytime highs around 80 degrees if not into the low 80s with low humidity. As luck would have it the “Sailabration” will wrap up Tuesday just before the real June heat and humidity arrive.

My friend Jacob Wycoff with Weather Bug was kind enough to send me a great time-lapse from yesterday with a great view of the Inner Harbor as the ships arrive. Enjoy and have a good weekend.
