Mobile Hot Spot
If you ask us, being stuck in the desert for another weekend of 100-plus-degree weather earns us the right to indulge in a little escapism. When Phoenix Caribbean Carnival arrives to inject some island spice into Valley life, it'll make for a welcome staycation.
Festivities heat up on Friday, May 25, and stay hot through May 27, with CityScape, 1 East Washington Street, serving as the sizzling center. Sunday starts at 7 a.m. with a free parade and the opening of the carnival village, which includes live performances, food, and arts and crafts, and remains open until 4 p.m. The revelry wraps up with the Las’ Lap party at 9 p.m. at Scottsdale's Ocean 7 Nightclub, 1420 North Scottsdale Road, where admission is $10.
Sat., May 26; Sun., May 27, 7 a.m., 2012
