The first weekend of summer and the last weekend of June will draw an estimated one million people into the city for the world-famous Pride celebration. While Pride weekend will take center stage in the city this weekend, don’t forget that the San Francisco Giants will begin a six game home stand on Friday. Muni service will be increased and get you out to AT&T Park for those games against the New York Mets and Colorado Rockies. Now, here's what you can expect during this weekend's Pride events.
