Watch the Tug

Of course, we'd rather have you tugging than watching, but spectators are needed too.

The Tug of War rope extends from the end of Second Street in Eastport — next to the Chart House Restaurant — across the harbor to Susan C. Campbell park at City Dock.

Cheer your team on at either of those locations or watch the rope move from the water. The Coast Guard and the Annapolis Harbor Master will close the harbor for the event from approximately 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Many spectator boats — including kayaks — come out to watch the festivities.
