Hold up on that diet this weekend -- the Maryland Seafood Festival opens tomorrow at Sandy Point State Park.

The smells seafood will mingle on the beach as visitors peruse dozens of dishes for sale. When not chewing they can buy arts and crafts, play or watch a beach volleyball tournament, cheer contestants in a crab soup cook-off, see Clydesdale horses and hear nonstop music.

Admission will be $6 for adults and children older than 12. Younger children will be admitted free with a paying adult. Senior citizens will be admitted for half price tomorrow. The festival ends Sunday. Information: 410-268-7682.
