Maritime Republic of Eastport’s Tug o’ War
November 4, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Drawing on a decades-old rivalry, the annual charitable event features the longest tug-of-war over a body of water in the world, pitting downtown Annapolitans against the rebels of the mock-breakaway Maritime Republic of Eastport. Dubbed the Slaughter Across the Water, it features a 1700-foot rope, 450 tuggers and about 1,000 spectators. A festival-like atmosphere overtakes downtown Eastport and Annapolis beginning at 11:00 a.m. Tugging begins promptly (more or less) at the crack o’ noon. Free.
