People can expect another street-clogging weekend as hundreds and thousands of people are expected to embark to the city for concerts, sailing competitions and Giants games.

About 65,000 are expected each day at Golden Gate Park for the three-day Outside Lands Music Festival. On the other side of the city, the struggling San Francisco Giants will take on the Baltimore Orioles in a three-game series which starts on Friday. Then down at Pier 27, Cheech & Chong and Train and company will entertain thousands at the America's Cup Pavilion on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

KCBS reports that Muni officials are encouraging visitors and locals alike to take public transportation. Additionally, the agency is running buses every five minutes to Outside Lands and Giants games from Civic Center Bart Station. 

At least the BART strike won't be a factor.
