"Maryland State Fairgrounds" Timonium by grandmaR
Timonium Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 10 photos
When my children got horses they started to participate in the 4-H shows which were very inexpensive (a dollar or two per event). After a couple of years, they qualified for the Maryland State Fair. This is held at the fairgrounds in Timonium every year at the end of August and beginning of September.
So for many years in the late 70s and early 80s, we'd trailer up from Leonardtown and the kids would show their horses and also go to the fair.
There is also a racetrack next to the fairgrounds where my SIL raced her thoroughbreds.
In the winter or offseason, the fairgrounds are used for large ham swap meets and the race track grandstand is used for various shows and musical events.
This is the cemetery where my husband's aunt and uncle are buried. They have metal plates set recessed in the lawn for easier mowing. The lawn benches that you see are memorials. No artificial flowers are allowed except at certain holidays and there are a lot of other rules.
