Preakness 2012 good for people watching -- even from granstand

May 19, 2012|By Alison Knezevich, The Baltimore Sun

With the grandstands still filling up before noon, Rose Kramer of Wilmington, Del. said she loved people-watching as the day progresses. She's been coming to Maryland for the race for the past few years.

She donned a fuzzy pink "Supergirl" hat with sequins, which she bought on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx, New York.

"I try not to go traditional," Kramer said. "I don't like traditional. I like craziness."

Tricia Brissett and John Santos of Baltimore City brought their 1-year-old daughter, Valentiana, who wore a polka-dotted hat with a big flower. It was the whole family's first Preakness.

"We're hoping by next year, they will have a day care center," Brissett said.
