Preakness Celebration has become a tradition for people of all ages since its inception in 1988. The week-long series of special events celebrates the annual running of the Preakness Stakes, Baltimore's "Super Bowl" and the 2nd jewel in thoroughbred racing's prestigious Triple Crown.

Each year, Preakness Celebration brings a new spirit to the slate of events including the picturesque Hot Air Balloon Festival, the spiritied Preakness Parade, the 5K Run, the popular Miller Lite Nites concert series, the Pee Wee Preakness and lots of other activities for children.

So Giddy Up and join us....there are "Lots of Ways to Horse Around!"
