The most colorful time of the year is back again, as Minneapolis hosts its annual Pride Parade along Hennepin Avenue on Sunday, June 29.

While the parade is fun to watch from the street, restaurants and bars will host events throughout the day so you can stay involved while also boozing and feasting in allegiance with the LGBTQ community. Grab a pair of shades, a friend (or five), and your pride, 'cause we've got the best rooftops to visit this Sunday.

The UNION Rooftop Direct view of Hennepin? Check. Rooftop for rain or shine? Check. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., you can eat and enjoy UNION's retractable rooftop while getting a right-on-Hennepin look at the events going on downtown. Specifically for the parade, UNION is hosting a viewing party complete with a DJ, entertainment, and parade commentary, for $10. The money will go toward One Heartland, a charity that raises money for programs geared toward youth and families in the LGTBQA community. Get your tickets while they're hot.

Seven Steakhouse
With the parade happening on Sunday, there's no surprise that we're dishing out yet another brunch spot. Seven is hosting its seventh annual Bitch N' Brunch the day of the parade. For $25 in advance or $30 at the door, you can score a 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. all-you-can-eat brunch deal while having access to a VIP view of Pride -- not to mention a complimentary mimosa at the beginning of your meal. Just want the sights and none of the food? $10 will get you access to seating as well as that free mimosa. Cabana couches, fresh air, and brunch: It sounds like the trifecta of summertime parade watching. Tickets for the event can be purchased here.
