Five Must-Attend July Fourth Weekend Pool Parties in Metro Phoenix

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.
