Seven Must-See Metro Phoenix Pool Parties in April

Page 3 of 4

Splash Bash at Phoenix Place Hotel & Suites The yearly Phoenix Pride Week festivities commence this weekend and include celebrations all over downtown and CenPho, including the annual Splash Bash on Friday, April 5. As in years past, all manner of activities and distractions are planned for the affair, including volleyball matches and other games, fashion shows, giveaways, dancing to the sounds provided by DJ Urban, and male strippers. Gates open at noon. Admission is free until 1 p.m. and $10 thereafter.

Summer Swag Swimsuit Fashion Show at Smashboxx Admittedly, this is cheating, because Smashboxx doesn't have a swanky swimming hole (unless one were unaware of has been installed). That said, the club will offer all the trappings of a Scottsdale-style pool party on Friday, April 5, only without the water. A total of 16 models will show off teeny-weeny bikinis from Triangles Swimwear and other swimwear emporiums, DJs will drop hot beats, potent adult beverages will be available, and the staff will hand out those glowing plastic batons to wave about while dancing. Doors open at 9 p.m. and there's no cover.
