Sock disposal

12-4 p.m. Saturday

The Maritime Republic of Eastport, a tongue-in-cheek civic group that stages the annual Annapolis tug of war, will offer a chance to take part in a traditional rite of spring on the Chesapeake Bay — the burning of socks at the end of winter. The 2024 Sock Burning in the Dark Horse Tavern parking lot will feature music by Nate Finn and All You Need, plus $4 dogs on the grill and a cash bar.

Admission is free, but the MRE is asking for donations to support Annapolis artist Rich Winford, who has been diagnosed with cancer. Winford will auction some of his recent works as part of the event.
