Summer is here and we got lots of things going on in the Puget Sound region.

June is Pride Month and celebrations are getting started this weekend for a milestone moment.

Seattle is celebrating 50 years of Pride Month celebrations and it all starts at Pride in the Park. On Saturday from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Volunteer Park, there will be live music, food trucks, vendors, informative booths and more. There will also be programming for kids and families, and the event is free so no tickets are needed.

This isn’t the only Pride-related event this weekend. There’s a street festival in White Center on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

If you are looking to give back this weekend, there’s a community cleanup happening in Capitol Hill. It’s called Taking Pride in Capitol Hill and lasts from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event is free, but t-shirts and food are first-come, first-served.

Paw-Fest returns to Kent

Paw-Fest is back this weekend! What’s Paw-Fest? It is a pet adoption event that features a pet parade, costume contest, agility shows, training tips and more. Pup cups will be served of course. Come meet your next furry friend or family member from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday at Kent Station.

Pagdiriwang Philippine Festival

The Festál celebrations continue this weekend at the Seattle Center. This weekend it is the Pagdiriwang Philippine Festival. The festival commemorates the anniversary of Philippine Independence. Held on the first or second week of June at the Seattle Center since 1987, the event has grown into the largest festival of Filipino arts and culture in the Pacific Northwest.

The event starts Saturday with a grand opening ceremony followed by dances, folk songs, food and a fashion extravaganza. The celebration goes from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Plant Sale Fundraiser at UW

If you are looking for some new houseplants and a way to support the University of Washington (UW), you are in luck. The annual Plant Sale Fundraiser kicks off Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. You’ll be able to walk through the UW farm and can pick up tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, summer squash, pollinators, herbs and more, all being organic.
