If you happen to be a fan of stylish swimming pool parties, the Memorial Day weekend certainly had a few to offer, especially up in Scottsdale.
Splash bashes at Maya Day and Nightclub, the W Hotel, and Talking Stick Resort over the three-day holiday were swamped with plenty of young and beautiful types that were eager to partake in all the hot beats, chilled drinks, and animated social scene both in and out of the pool.
And there was also much in the way of people-watching going on as well for members of either sex thanks to all the swimsuit-wearing eye-candy about. We hit up several of the affairs and snapped plenty of pictures of Memorial Day weekend revelers, including those making up this visual study of sorts of the beautiful, the beautifully strange, or just folks who were fascinating to watch.
