From chocolate chunk cookies to the Seattle Pride Parade!

SEATTLE — It's a big week y'all - Pride is underway, and there's plenty to do this week. Here's just a few ways you can celebrate across Seattle and western Washington. 

Shikorina Pastries - Central District

10th annual Totally Gay Singalong - Central District

And while you're in the Central District, warm up your vocal cords - on Thursday at 8 p.m., Central Cinema is celebrating their 10th annual Totally Gay Singalong! This even includes two hours of subtitled videos for your singalong enjoyment. Tickets are available here.

Pride Weekend - Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium 

This weekend Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium and Northwest Trek are celebrating Pride with rainbow enrichments for the animals, as well as an animal Pride parade that leaves from the Wild Wonders Stage at 1:30 p.m.

Seattle Pride Parade - 4th Avenue (between Pike Street and Denny Way)

On the 26th, the Seattle Pride Parade kicks off at 11 a.m. after a two year hiatus. The year's theme is Family Reunion, which makes sense because 200 groups are participating in the event! The route runs along 4th Avenue between Pike Street and Denny Way.

Pro Tip: Get there really early for a spot alongside the parade route, or head to the W Seattle for their Sunday Pride Brunch at 8:30 a.m.
