Updated Plan on Thursday, October 1 – Due to the cancellation of the Fun Fest, our boarding of the Pride of Baltimore has also been cancelled. The Walk will go on, however! We will now meet at the entrance to the Broadway Market at Broadway and Thames at 9am. We’ll visit the market and then explore the neighborhood and visit the waterfront to capture the wild weather, reflections in puddles, and whatever else we can manage until driven indoors to The Horse You Came In On Saloon or one of the other local restaurants along Thames St. Join us!
Let’s shoot! Fells Point is hosting its annual Fun Fest on Saturday, October 3 and we’re going to be the first ones there that morning — and when we finish up you can enjoy the rest of the day at the Festival. Aside from great waterfront views, The Pride of Baltimore will be docked there, we’ll see vendors setting up, federal style homes, cobblestone streets, quirky Bawl-mer bars and characters, and plenty more.
Special note – the staff of the Pride of Baltimore will allow our PhotoWalk group to board the ship in advance of the public opening – we can board at 10:30am. This will be a great opportunity to get some shots not otherwise possible when lots of visitors are on board.
We’ll meet on the outskirts of the Festival and you’ll find street parking (parking fee kiosks) or choose from several parking garages on Caroline between Thames and Lancaster and others near Lancaster and Central. If you can, take the water taxi in! Once we meet up, we’ll head to Bond Street Wharf and then skip in between the waterfront promenade and the streets of the festival (not quite the route the map would allow, but close) as we make our way to The Pride and beyond and then finish up at the Harvest Beer and Wine Garden. Note that we’ll be on some cobblestone streets, so plan footwear accordingly!
