2013 Preakness - Baltimore, MD

What's on the agenda this weekend?  On the third Saturday of May, Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, MD host the Preakness Stakes or the second leg of the US Triple Crown (the other two being Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes).  I always thought the horse races were full of pomp and circumstance: ladies in large hats, men in bow ties, etc.  Little did I know (until I actually went to the Preakness in my early twenties) the Infield is a full out PARTY.  Think tailgating x100!  Seems that it has become a bit more organized these days.  They call the infield party the InfieldFest and this year will be featuring Pitbull and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis! Looks like the Fest is sold out as of Friday but who knows if there's last minute tickets available!
