Don't surrender to the couch as the temperatures climb into the triple digits this weekend. Whether you decide to cool off at an urban water park or with a cool glass of rosé, there is still plenty to keep you entertained in Phoenix:
It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Prowl and Play at The Phoenix Zoo! Superheroes take the night off this Saturday to unleash their powers for an exciting evening in the desert. Bring your whole crew for epic water slides, dance parties, crafts, and meet and greets with your favorite heroes.
Saturdays through September 1
The Desert Botanical Garden invites you to experience the sights, sounds and mysteries of the desert after dark each Saturday night of the summer. Beam your flashlight toward the trail as you stroll the desert paths to capture night-blooming plants and get up-close with desert critters.
Hit the streets of Downtown Phoenix as CityScape transforms into an urban water park this weekend. Lather up with sunscreen before cooling off in the splash pad, racing down water slides, or relaxing in the shade. Cool off, chill out, and learn about water safety just in time to kick off summertime in Phoenix.
The inaugural Blush International Rosé Festival arrives in Old Town Scottsdale with over 100 wines from around the world in tow. A ticket grants you unlimited tastings, live music, access to the Pink boutique, and delectable treats from renowned chefs. Secure a spot in any of the three sessions throughout the day, with proceeds benefiting the Phoenix Children's Hospital (as if you even needed a reason to rosé all day).
