Late Night Drip will host late night pool parties and Late Night Hype will host carnival-style fun at recreation centers

(Washington, DC) Today, Mayor Muriel Bowser and the DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) announced a series of neighborhood parties each Friday this summer at outdoor pools and recreation centers across the District. Both Late Night Hype – at recreation centers – and Late Night Drip – at outdoor pools – will provide residents of all ages a fun and safe recreational opportunity throughout the summer of 2022. The first of the weekly series begins this Friday, June 10 at Ridge Road Pool from 6 pm – 11 pm.

“We’ve been thrilled to see the success of DPR’s innovative Late Night Hype events, with thousands of residents joining together for nights of community fun,” said Mayor Bowser. “Now, we’re excited to expand the popular series to our pools and ensure young people have plenty of safe, fun, and engaging options this summer throughout the District.”

Late Night Hype is an evening outdoor carnival-style party where DPR brings out the best in mobile recreation including bounce houses, skating/biking, snow cones, popcorn, live music, video games, and more. Late Night Drip is an evening pool party, where one of DPR’s 23 outdoor pools stays open under the stars for all to enjoy until 11 pm.

“The hype continues to build at DPR,” said DPR Director Delano Hunter. “Under the leadership of Mayor Muriel Bowser, we continue to invest in meeting the recreational needs of residents as we build the Late Night Hype brand, which began last summer. I invite all DC residents to come out to a Late Night Hype or Late Night Drip on a Friday this summer!”
