5 Labor Day Weekend Pool Parties in Phoenix and Scottsdale

The dog days of summertime officially come to an end a few days from now, which certainly is reason enough to celebrate. Here's another: It's also Labor Day weekend, and that means around 72 hours of work-free bliss, if you're fortunate enough to have all three days off.

Your friends who happen to have pools will probably be putting on some sort of shindig, but those backyard bashes likely can't compare to the sort of swim celebrations that are scheduled to occur at a few hotels and other places in Scottsdale and Phoenix from Saturday, August 30, to Monday, September 1.
