Late night pool party at Banneker Pool this Saturday!

This is pretty neat: the city's Departments of Parks and Recreation is holding late night pool parties, what they're calling "A Splish Splash Summer." This Saturday's is at Banneker Pool at Georgia and Euclid from 8:30pm to 11:30pm.

The pool will be open late, there's no entry fee (if you're a DC resident) and there will be a DJ and music -- however, you can't bring in outside food or drink. It does sound fun however, to enjoy the great city pools at night. It might be a fun post-dinner activity.

Here's their full press release. There are two other events after this at other pools around the city.

I just love late night parties. When I was in Houston I used to do loads of parties at the local party venues in Houston. I really miss those days. Well, I will meet some of my college friends in the next month. Feeling so excited!!
