There’s one in particular that I’ve had marked on my calendar for a while: Chestertown Crazy Days. The event is basically a giant sidewalk sale, but with added fun like performers and kids activities. And super awesome bargains. Crazy, some might say. And let the record show that I haven’t been looking for this because I’m cheap. I’m just thrifty.

If, however, you’re looking to cram a little culture into your weekend, head to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum on Saturday. There, they’re celebrating Chesapeake traditions from off the beaten path with the Chesapeake Folk Festival. Highlighting the Bay’s people, arts, work, and food, the event will include live music all day long, hands-on activities with regional craftspeople, and opportunities to paddle around the harbor in small craft made by shipwrights. Fun.

A little further down on the Shore, Cambridge is hosting the Cambridge Classic Powerboat Regatta on Saturday in Great Marsh Park. Now in its 102nd year, the event is an American Powerboat Association-sanctioned inboard hydroplane and flat-bottom boats race.  The pit area will be open for spectators to look at the boats and talk with the race teams. Food and drinks will be available.

Back here in Annapolis, Infinity Theatre company is currently in the midst of their production of The Tall Tales of Enoch. Enoch is a seven-year old with a problem: he's desperate to impress his new third grade class—by telling tall tales about himself. But the combination of loving parents, a new friend who just transferred to his school, and a helpful guidance counselor, teaches the boy that it's okay to admit that he can't live up to his false promises.  Find out what happens by checking out the production, Saturdays at 11 a.m. from now until August 4th.

And if you, like a lot of people in this area, just can’t wait for football, you’re in luck. Head Coach Mike Shanahan kicked off Redskins Training Camp presented by RE/MAX on Thursday with 13 total practices open to the public. Check out the newest Redskins, and get reacquainted with familiar faces.
