SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — A series of events are planned through the weekend as San Francisco’s lesbian, gay and transgender community celebrates the 42nd annual Pride Celebration.

Events include what organizers call the “Dyke March” in the city’s Dolores Park and the so-called “Pink Saturday” street party, a celebration that began Saturday night in the Castro District. Organizers say the party is the city’s largest
underground street party.

Streets were blocked off in the area, so San Francisco transit officials advised bus riders that service will be rerouted through the neighborhood.

The biggest event of the weekend kicks off on Sunday when the streets of downtown San Francisco are expected to be jammed with revelers for the annual Gay Pride parade.

Organizers say more than 200 floats, vehicles and groups of marchers will take part in the parade.
