FESTIVAL

CELEBRATE HONS!

PUT ON YOUR LEOPARD-PRINT spandex and best beehive hairdo and head to Hampden this weekend, hon! The annual Honfest, a "Bawlmer" tradition, is back with food, music and, of course, the best hons in the city. The festival showcases cat-eye glasses, bright makeup and hair -- the higher, the better -- in a celebration of the women of the '60s. Proceeds from the festival will go to Project 12, a nonprofit organization aimed at decreasing the high school dropout rate in Baltimore.

The Honfest is this Saturday and Sunday, on 36th Street in Hampden. Events run 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday and 12 p.m.-6 p.m. Sunday. Free, and open to the public. Go to honfest.net.
