Whoa: Banneker Pool will have a DJ & night swimming on Saturday!

This is awesome! The Banneker Pool at 2500 Georgia Ave NW will have what they're calling a #SplishSplashSummer pool party tomorrow night, with a DJ and night swimming. The event, from 7 to 11 pm, is free but they ask you to RSVP.

It's free for residents and non-residents alike, and there's no outside food or drink, so that means no booze. The pool does have a snack bar with a few items but it's not clear if it will be open for the party.

Still sounds like a lot of fun. Here's the press release from the city:
