With Pride festivities happening all across town this weekend, there's a lot of stuff going on in the city. Here's a roundup of some things taking place in Hayes Valley.

A few weeks ago, we shared how the mysterious wooden box in front of Ritual Coffee was actually a permanent home for the Juice Shop's mobile store. After putting on the final touches, they're now open for business. Beginning today, the Juice Box will be selling their drinks every day from 8am-7pm. If you make a purchase today, you'll enter a raffle for a free 4-pack or 6-pack of juices. They're also handing out free samples today so swing by to check them out. [Hayes & Octavia] 

John Baden's newest art installation in the neighborhood is called "Normal." As we shared a few weeks ago, it was created in the old location of Cisco Home. The piece of art has only been viewable from the street until now. The store will be open this Sunday from 11am-6pm if you want to take a closer look or get pictures.  [580 Hayes]

While the route for this Sunday's Pride parade runs just outside our neighborhood, it's a quick trip if you want to check the festivities out. This year's theme is Color Our World With Pride and the parade kicks off at Market & Beale at 10:30am and ends near Market & 8th. The party then moves to the Civic Center plaza for the rest of the afternoon. Hayes Valley tends to see a lot of spill over from people leaving the festival, so head outside in the afternoon for some quality people-watching.  [City Hall]
