Seven Must-Attend Memorial Day Weekend Parties and Events in Metro Phoenix

Anyone planning to party this coming weekend should be thankful that Monday, May 26, is Memorial Day (a national holiday) and wherever they happen to work is gonna be closed for business. That's because they're probably gonna need that entire 24-hour stretch to recover from whatever shenanigans transpire during the preceding two days and three nights.

Memorial Day weekend is going to be filled with activities and adventures, whether you happen to be dropping by Phoenix Comicon in downtown Phoenix, attending a backyard barbecue, or getting in some nightlife action at a local club. For those seeking distractions in the form of the latter, perhaps partaking in a pool party or two, or having fun in the drinking or dancing vein, we've assembled a rundown of several worthwhile events happening around metro Phoenix both on Saturday, May 25, and Sunday, May 26.
