World Cup (Saturday)
After that emotionally demanding game against Algeria, the U.S. National team will square off against group D runner-up Ghana in our first game of the single-elimination round. Their powerful play in the last round means that the US squad barely missed a match against Germany, who will go up against the English instead. Kick-off is at 1:30. Here's a St. Louis World Cup Soccer Bars directory. And don't miss Keegan Hamilton's continued month long pub-crawl and soccer-viewing.

Pride Pet Parade (Saturday)
More than just a parade, the pet parade kicks off with Yappy Hour at 10 a.m. Saturday with music and face painting. Judging commences an hour later with the obligatory awards for best in show, but some more off-beat awards like "Softest Pet." The parade starts at noon at the intersection of Morgan Ford and Utah and proceeds downtown, ending with an awards ceremony and a free barbecue lunch for participants. Admission is $10, but the parade is free to watch. PrideFest has all the info.

You, You're Awesome at London Calling (Saturday)
As part of the London Calling series of dance parties, the Gramophone is hosting the debut St. Louis performance of You, You're Awesome, Cincinnati's "two-member Indie 8-bit video game samplers." Cover is $4, after 10 p.m. it is $8. Learn more on the event's Facebook page.

Cherokee Street Bizarre Bazaar (Sunday)
Kitsch, tchotchkes, and trinkets abound, not to mention delicious baked goods and maybe even some genuinely precious finds at the Bizarre Bazaar, run out of the store Binge and Purge. The treasure hunting and haggling kicks off at 10 a.m., and while it's free to wander, reserving a spot costs $10 and must be requested by Friday. Nicole Beckert has the scoop on Cherokee's Bizarre Bazaar.

Pride Parade (Sunday)
The annual PrideFest parade is only one part of a weekend filled with events, but it is by far the most visible. The parade begins at noon and can last for two hours, finally ending in Tower Grove Park. Check out RFT's photos from last year's event to see how colorful St. Louis can be. Here's more info on this year's parade.
