Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered.

Did the Pride Parade leave you hungry for slow-moving vehicles and festive vibes? The Parade of Boats is like that. Head to the east end of Navy Pier to catch a glimpse of sailing vessels shoving off to compete in the Race to Mackinac, the Chicago Yacht Club's annual competition.

There's a lot more to the Volleywood Beach Bash than a giant daylong volleyball tournament. Attendees also enjoy food, DJ sets, an ample beer garden and patio, something called a VIP Day Club, and, to top it all off, a performance by pop star Jason Derulo.

If you don't have tickets to Pitchfork's sold-out Sunday line-up, never fear. The Dum Dum Girls and Speedy Ortiz are playing tonight at the Bottom Lounge. Mary Timony's new band Ex Hex shares the bill.
