It’s Pride Weekend here in San Diego.

In honor of rainbow flags flying, here are my rainbow-colored recipes for a very rainbow flag-flying kind of weekend.

What are you doing this weekend?

Have you ever been to any Pride festivals, events, or parades?

Here are the last few years worth that I have blog posts from:

2009

2010

2011 <– some fun pictures in this post

Celebrating diversity and promoting tolerance; the vibe in the city, the people-watching, the great energy, it’s so much fun to be around and it’s one of my favorite weekends of the year.

My neighborhood is more than alive right now with a half million Pride attendees and visitors from all over the country. It’s the fourth largest Pride Parade in the country.

My car is parked for the weekend; it’s a walking-only kind of weekend due to all the traffic and road closures and that’s just fine with me.

Thanks for the Zoku Single Quick Pop Maker and Chocolate Station Giveaway entries and have a great weekend!
