This weekend is going to be bustling with colorful, exciting, proud and dazzling celebrations all centered around Seattle's Pride Parade, which takes place this Sunday.

If you looked at the list of things happinging in Seattle this weekend (don't bother driving, by the way) and felt overwhelmed, don't worry because we have you covered.

From good food with a good cause to all the Seattle sporting you could want while still celebrating the advancements and continued progress made for LGBTQ causes! 

Check it out:

Brunch With Pride (Sunday Morning): Before you get down to celebrating Pride downtown, grab some grub at a few of the local watering holes for Brunch With Pride. A portion of the proceeds you spend on your brunch go to support Seattle Pride Parade, so make your calories count and eat for good! Participating restaurants include Bell + Whete, Capitol Cider, El Chupacabra, Sam’s Tavern and Mama's Cantina.

Seattle Pride Parade (Sunday @ 11am): Seattle Pride Parade is one of the largest in the country and nearly half a million people gather downtown to watch the annual event go down. This year's route starts at 4th and Union and goes north, ending on Denny. There are a TON of participants this year and you won't want to miss it. 

Capitol Hill Pride (Saturday 12pm-9pm): DJs, food trucks and drag queens. You can find all of the above this Saturday just outside the light rail station up on Capitol Hill! Bringing the kids? Hit up Family Pride from 1pm-4pm at Cal Anderson! 

Sounders FC Pride Match (Saturday @ 2pm): Show your LGBTQ Pride and celebrate Sounders Pride at the same time! Catch the afternoon match-up between Sounders FC and New York City FC at the Sounders' Pride Match at CenturyLink Field!
