These photos were taken at the 26th Annual Baltimore HONfest on June 8, 2019. To quote the organizers: “HONfest symbolizes all the charm and goodwill that lies within the hearts of those who live, work, and play in Bawlmer.”
For the Hons and Honettes, the celebration begins in the beauty tent, where the women and their daughters get their hair done and have their makeup applied. After parading around the stalls, enjoying some live music and washing down crab cakes with a Baltimore brew, the spectators head to the main stage for the Baltimore’s Best Hon contests.
