Summer is warming up and so are new events around town. Listen in on a unique lineup of concerts and symphonies, find fun ways to stay cool (mud party, anyone?) and more with our top things to do in Phoenix this weekend:

Water Parks and Splash Pads
The sun is shining and Phoenix’s water attractions are beckoning. Parks like Wet ‘n’ Wild, Big Surf and Golfland Sunsplash mix refreshment and excitement with thrilling slides, rolling wave pools, lazy rivers, and water playgrounds for little ones. Kids can also cool off at splash pads across town. Check out a full list of splash pad locations at the end of our list of Family-Friendly Activities.
