Friday there is a ceremony at the Maryland Historical Society and the new Star Spangled Banner will then be carried through the streets of Baltimore to Fort McHenry. It will fly Saturday night…so get ready for lots of photos!

But before the celebration, here are some photos of some of the visitors who took stitches in the flag this summer.
Everyone’s favorite…the Oriole Bird!
