Top 5 Things to Do in Metro Phoenix This Weekend

An extra-long Labor Day weekend means there's more than usual to do. From partying to pageantry, here are your best bets for getting out and about.

Splat! Paint & Foam Party @ Arizona Event Center Who needs "good clean fun" when you can get a little dirty? Such is the premise of Splat's annual paint party.

This rave spans three stages, each designated for paint, foam, and a "clean" zone. The bash boasts a laundry list of DJs that run the gamut from hardstyle to electro to dubstep, including the talents of Luminox, Freddy Todd, DJ Dali, St8house, and many more. Guests are encouraged to wear white in order to make the paint appear that much more brilliant. (But don't worry; the paint is washable, though you may want to keep your colorful clothes as a souvenir.) VIP ticketholders receive a complimentary bottle of paint, because dousing somebody with hot pink paint isn't a bad way to break the ice.
