Lacrosse Fan Fest back in town
Lacrosse fans will converge on the Baltimore Convention Center Saturday for the annual Fan Fest, the nation's largest indoor lacrosse exhibition.
Fan Fest, part of US Lacrosse's annual national convention, features the latest in lacrosse gear as well as clinics and demonstrations, including a contest in which players can try to make a watermelon explode with their shot.
More than 140 vendors will be on hand with clothing, equipment and other lacrosse-specific items in the EXPO Hall. Among the demonstrations will be one by the Chesapeake Bayhawks, the 2010 MLL champions and by the U19 women's national team as it prepares for the Federation of International Lacrosse U10 World Championships in Germany this summer.
Rashad Devoe, Lacrosse Magazine's strength and conditioning coach, and Hall of Famer Tom Marechek, the Glenelg Country boys coach, will also have demonstrations.
The US Lacrosse convention brings in more than 5,000 people from all parts of lacrosse culture. Cost for Fan Fest is $10 -- $5 for youngsters 12 and under, wearing their lacrosse jerseys. Under six are free.
