    In the spring of 1992, the city of Baltimore unveiled the latest addition to its downtown revitalization project, and incidentally, started a revolution. Oriole Park at Camden Yards, with its downtown location, nostalgic ambiance and charming 19th century warehouse backdrop, kicked off an ultra-urban, retro-themed stadium boom.

For the bands: If your Broad Street Run isn’t complete without a little trumpet and snare-drum action, make sure to stick around City Hall or the Union League building at Broad and Sansom. According to Marino, these are the places to stand if you want a band for background music.

For the party: Lululemon and the November Project are teaming up again this year to deliver a full-blown cheer fiesta at Broad and Jackson. And trust us, they take their cheering duties very seriously: Expect mini trampolines, water guns and a DJ spinning jams all morning.

For the energy: Head to Broad and Pine or Broad and Washington Avenue to hop on the hype train. Marino says the crowds at these locations often bring the most passionate (and audible) spectators.
