For the Family

Will anyone take the crab crown away from repeat-winner Michael Jordan? (Yes, really, Michael Jordan of Maryland). His 9.5 oz of crab meat mallet-ed and shell-shocked the competition last year!
  • The return of the Touch-a-Boat tour: A scavenger hunt (with prizes!) where kids receive a passport to collect stamps at designated “boat stops,” where they get to explore life on the high seas.
