Five Must-Attend July Fourth Weekend Pool Parties in Metro Phoenix
Benjamin Leatherman Tiny flags and tiny swimwear at the W Scottsdale's July Fourth pool party in 2012.
If ever there was a time to wear that nifty U.S. flag bikini or bathing suit you picked up at American Apparel, it'd be over the next few days. Given that the Fourth of July is less than 24 hours hence, such star spangled swimwear would be appropriate ensemble if you're spending time lounging around the pool or merely dipping your toes into the water.
That goes double if you're attending any of the swim parties and special pool events that are occurring on either on Thursday, July 4, or throughout the upcoming weekend.
We've chosen to highlight five such events, and the list includes the return of a hipster favorite, a couple of bashes at hotels, and a more arty and fashion-oriented event on Sunday afternoon. Just make sure no one tries to pledge allegiance to you if you're sporting the stars and stripes.
Fourth of July Weekend at Maya Day and Nightclub
Scottsdale's newest swim spot will be bringing some big names in order to bring the masses out to their venue in a big way over the holiday weekend. To wit: Cheeky British-born beat-juggler Fatboy Slim will jet across the pond for a headlining performance set at Maya's party on Thursday afternoon. General admission is $40 and the VIP treatment will run you $80. Tommy Lee, the debaucherous drummer for Mötley Crüe and all-around party fiend, is scheduled to DJ along with his cohort Aero at the joint on Sunday, July 7. Tickets are $15 to $50. Both events run from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m.
