The Baltimore Grand Prix is this weekend, and, as we've discussed in the magazine, a lot is riding on the race for Baltimore.
And if you're curious to check out the races, you might be happy to know that the whole thing is very family friendly. Kids two and under get in free and older kids can get discounted tickets (grounds admissions tickets start at $15, and there is FREE admission to the paddock on Friday, which kids should love).
Plus there are a ton of kids activities at and around the races. Most are centered around the Family Fun Zone, which includes the Hersheypark Road Tour, with games and characters from the park. The RAACE Foundation has a giant wheel to spin for prizes, plus a big wheel racetrack (pictured!), where kids in three age groups can compete for prizes. Also, Port Discovery will have booths where kids can create their own race cars, among other things. The Family Fun Zone will be located on the east end of the festival grounds, by the Charles St. entrance to the Convention Center.
And, of course, there are the real race cars whizzing by, which are likely to be the greatest attraction for the kids and grown-ups alike—especially the grown-ups fantasizing about making it from I-83 to Camden Yards in under one minute...
