5 Must-Attend Spring Pool Parties in Metro Phoenix

Good thing it's complete B.S. (we checked), which means you needn't fear singing along to any of the tunes being spun up poolside while showing off your brand new bathing suit at one of the must-attend pool parties happening this spring.
A helluva lot of LGBT-centric celebrations are scheduled to transpire during Phoenix Pride over the next 10 days, not the least of which is this lively and well-attended annual affair. Commencing at noon, it will feature eight straight hours of fun in and around the hotel's pool area, including multiple vendors, performances by strippers, open play beach volleyball, dancing, and more. DJ Pornstar and DJ Urban will provide the soundtrack and QTalk America personality Clayton McKee hosts the event. Admission is free before 1 p.m. and $10 thereafter.

Big changes are afoot for Talking Stick's weekend pool party series this year. Firstly, it's kicking off a month earlier on Saturday, April 5, and will now encompass a new "lounge pool" in close proximity to the resort's stylish swimming pool. Coupled with variety of extra cabanas and canopy daybeds have been added in the off-season, it means there will be twice the swimsuit-clad bodies to admire. A new stage will host a roster of guest DJs from Las Vegas and L.A., poolside, promos and giveaways will be handed out, and drink specials will be available. The parties run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. Admission is free.
