The rumors are true, hon! You can be more in Baltimore! There will be a Baltimore Skate Weekend this year. B.more Skate Weekend is an exciting weekend of skating on the streets of Charm City. This is a FREE event; there is no registration required. You are responsible for getting yourself there, your lodging, and your food. We will lead the skates. Mother Nature will provide the great weather. Our hostess with the mostess will be B.more resident and skater Dhana Clark. This will be Dhana's last year in Baltimore so this may very well be the only Baltimore Skate Weekend in our lifetimes. Plan accordingly.
Hotel Group-up is 15 minutes before the start times indicated below. Group-up is on South Hanover Street (between West Baltimore and West Fayette Streets) just outside the Hotel's side entrance. All skates leave from the Radisson Plaza Lord Baltimore Hotel at the times indicated. Traffic & parking can take additional time so please plan to arrive early if driving into the city.
