The weekend is just around the corner, and I have some suggestions on how to spend your time, making most of the very summery-feeling heat here in the Bay Area.
PRIDE is upon us here in San Francisco, and you can find all of the details about this year’s PRIDE parade and other city-sponsored events happening around downtown this weekend at SFPRIDE.org.
I recommend taking a break from the melee surrounding Civic Center on Sunday afternoon, and head to Hard French’s Los Homos pride party, featuring live performances by the Extra Action Marching Band and the final career performance of the band E.S.G., who made waves in the 1970’s and 80’s for their rhythmic, No Wave dance ballads.
Hard French’s Los Homos party is happening at The Mezzanine on Jessie Street in San Francisco. You can find out all the details at HardFrench.com.
48 Hills has a great rundown of events for PRIDE week; check 'em out.
If you’re looking to stay clear of San Francisco’s festivities all together this weekend, and you’re in dire need of a funnel cake, I recommend heading to the Alameda County Fair. The fair is in full-swing from now until Sunday, July 5th, in Pleasanton. For a schedule of music performances, as well as special events, head to their website: alamedacountyfair.com.
Also, if you’re in the East Bay, Adobe Park in Castro Valley is hosting a free, outdoor, family movie night tomorrow evening. They’ll be screening the movie adaptation of Alexander and the Terrible No Good Very Bad Day. For a full list of outdoor family movie nights happening around Castro Valley and Hayward, check out haywardrec.org.
Is there an event happening this weekend that you'd like folks to know about? Feel free to add it below in the comments section.
