2. EVENT: Austin Pride
This weekend, Austin is launching into its Pride festivities. Begin your revelry with some early exercise: the Rainbow Run 5k on Saturday at 9 a.m. The 3.1-mile run goes through the streets of the city’s downtown district, ending in a dance party and a “huge rainbow explosion.” Afterward, the city’s Pride Festival begins at 11 a.m., featuring performances from Steve Grand, Jane Wiedlin of the Go-Go’s, Crystal Waters, as well as RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Raja, Shangela, and Shannel. The city also boasts a nighttime parade, which begins at the state capitol building at 8 p.m. and attracts more than 70,000 spectators annually. Expect colorful costumes and floats that celebrate this year’s theme, “Love Unites.” For more information, visit Austin Pride’s official website, AustinPride.org.
