ESPN ZONE PLANS OUTDOOR FEST TO TRUMPET BALTIMORE ARRIVAL
Published June 8, 1998
When the ESPN Zone restaurant opens in Baltimore next month, it "will also launch a yearly event" for the city's Inner Harbor, "an outdoor sports festival for fans and participants alike," according to June Arney of the Baltimore SUN. This year's event will be hosted by ESPN's Dan Patrick on July 11, the day before the scheduled opening of ESPN Zone. The festival, which will offer exhibition freestyle ski-jumping and slam-dunking, along with skate boarding, in-line skating and mountain biking on a U-shaped ramp, will be taped and telecast on ESPN July 12 (SUN, 6/7).
