The first weekend in November is always a special time in the Historic District of Annapolis. It is when the “Annapolis by Candlelight” tour occurs. Numerous homes are open to the public for visiting on Friday and Saturday evenings, Nov 7 & 8 between 5 & 9 PM. This year the tour centers around homes on King George Street, Maryland Avenue and Prince George Street. All homes are located within a short walk of each other. Your entrance fee is usable on both nights of the tour. Tickets are available through the Historic Annapolis Foundation. So get your walking shoes on and come to Annapolis this weekend for a look inside several beautiful Annapolis homes – some of which were built in the 1700’s.
If you get to town early on Saturday you can experience the annual Tug of War between the Historic District and the Eastport District of Annapolis. A very long rope is placed across the Spa Creek that separates the two areas and teams from each side pull for fun and to help raise money that is donated to local charities. If you would like to be a participant you can register through Main Streets Annapolis. The event begins at the “Crack of Noon” and will have several team events with all competing for bragging rights for the year.
The leaves are changing colors and the beauty of autumn abounds in the area so get out and enjoy this lovely time of year.
