BALTIMORE, Md. (WNEW) — It’s turned into an annual tradition in Baltimore, and just as much a spectacle: HonFest in Hampden.

It celebrates this city’s iconic retro housewives and Baltimore’s unique culture.

The festival started in 1994 and has evolved from a tiny Baltimore’s Best Hon pageant behind Café Hon, to a nationally recognized festival that covers four city blocks on Hampden’s own 36th Street.
