SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Several virtual events this weekend offer San Diegans the chance to connect from the comfort of home.

San Diego County's two drive-in theaters are back up and running, offering physical distance during showtimes. County beaches are open for sunbathing and relaxing, as long as visitors adhere to social distancing and wear facial coverings as well.

San Diego Pride's virtual celebrations start this weekend with She Fest, a celebration featuring live music, art, games, and workshops while showcasing the contributions and talents of women and fostering connections.

Two virtual beer festivals will also be held this weekend, giving beer fans a way to connect and support local breweries.
