Things to do to plan your weekend

Plan your weekend


Pride Parade: St. Pete Pride will stage its seventh annual event, a fun, inspiring, funky, political and raucous celebration of gay pride. The parade starts at 10 a.m. at Georgie's Alibi, 3100 Third Ave. N, and winds through the Kenwood neighborhood before finishing up on Central near the Detour complex.


Hello Dali! We're guessing this dance performance, inspired by 11 of Salvador Dalí's major paintings, will be more about melty clocks and toreadors and less about the artist's more, uh, intriguing obsessions. Fuzion Dance Artists collaborate with the Dalí Museum and local composer A. Paul Johnson for a contemporary mix of music, dance and visual art. You can come to the museum, 1000 Third St. S in St. Petersburg, an hour before show time to bone up on Dalí's work and life. Shows are 7:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $15, $10 students. (727) 823-3767.


Il Divo Your mom just loves these superstars of "popera" and they sure are cute. See the Simon Cowell creation take on familiar songs, including the Moody Blues' Nights in White Satin and Toni Braxton's Unbreak My Heart on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. Mahaffey Theater, 400 First Street South, St. Petersburg. $58.70-$128.70. (727) 892-5767.

Game concert

Rays and Pat Benatar See the '80s best girlfriend on Saturday after the Rays vs. Marlins game, which starts at 7:08 p.m. on Saturday at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg. Free with game ticket, which start at $10. (888) 326-7297.

Mullet rapper

Kid Rock and Lynyrd Skynyrd The king of trailer-park tacky brings his glorious slippery-haired mashup of rap, rock and country. Kid accomplished an impressive feat with latest Rock 'N Roll Jesus, selling more than 4 million copies without iTunes sales. As for Skynyrd, how many songs are you giving it until "That Guy" shouts for Freebird? Johnny Van Zandt (original Skynyrd frontman Ronnie's younger brother) carries out the Southern rock classics well, though the band lost longtime members Ean Evans and Billy Powell this year. The show is Saturday at 6:30 p.m. at theFord Amphitheatre, 4802 U.S. 301 N, Tampa. $26-$76. (813) 740-2446. — Sharon Kennedy Wynne
