Southeast Baltimore greeted the first weekend of sunny spring weather with fun events for all ages.

Fell’s Point Main Street hosted the Privateer Festival on Saturday, April 18 and Sunday, April 19. Landlubbers descended upon the waterfront for a taste of the pirate’s life, complete with live reenactments and women submerged in tanks dressed as mermaids.

Also, the Greek Independence Parade marched through Greektown on Sunday, April 19. Colorful traditional costumes, a performance troupe, and prominent members of the community walked from Haven Street to Ponca Street, displaying Greek pride.
