From horses to seahorses, this weekend’s activities run the gamut.

At the other end of the spectrum is the annual Gay Pride parade and lemon and garlic festival.
Here’s the your to the top events this weekend.
Annual Over The Line Tourney
It’s the final weekend for one of San Diego’s bluest summer traditions. Over the Line is a bat and ball game played with two teams of three players each.

Play time is from 7 a.m. to dusk Saturday and Sunday at Fiesta Island. Admission is free for spectators, but the OMBAC asks that you follow its 5Bs rules — no booze, babies, bowsers, battles or birds.
