Now that summer is in full swing, Outer Sunset residents have a wealth of outdoor events to choose from. 

Much of San Francisco will be celebrating Pride this weekend, and Outer Sunset is no different. Starting today, head over to the San Francisco Zoo for a Pink Pride weekend starring the zoo's flock of brilliantly pink Chilean flamingos. Visitors will have the opportunity to make a pink decoration for the Zoo's float, which will appear in the Pride parade on Sunday morning.

On Saturday, romp around with corgis and their human fans at Corgi Con on Ocean Beach. The event draws hundreds of corgis and their humans in a fun-filled extravaganza of stumpy dog goodness. With races and a costume contest, there's a lot of cuteness to go around.
