Crab Derby

Preakness week is officially under way with lots of fun traditions taking place all week long. These include the Pee-Wee Preakness, 5k race, balloon launch, crab derby, Preakness parade, Black Eyed Susan Races and of course the day we have all been waiting for- Preakness.

I was able to stop by Lexington Market today at lunch time to catch some of the action at the Preakness Crab Derby. Although not quite as exciting as I imagine the horse races will be on Saturday, the crab derby was certainly entertaining! Folks lined up to watch local celebrities try to entice their Maryland Blue Crabs to take a few steps and cross their own finish line. With squirt bottles in hand, lively music and a fun emcee the crab derby was definitely a sight to be seen. Here are a few of my photos!
