When: Nov. 2 From 12-6 p.m.

Hotel Zoso (formerly the Hard Rock Hotel) will start off the weekend festivities with their “Dip Into Pride” Official Pool Party. This 21 and over event will have you swaying by the pool all day long and into the night with special musical guests and a DJ set. You can also reserve a cabana or daybed ahead of time if it fits your fancy. Tickets can be purchased the day of the event or online, but get them sooner rather than later in case they sell out. Did we mention the swimwear contest?
