Though the summer is basically gone, it’s still hot out there. And this weekend will be no exception.

Luckily, District spray parks set to close for the season this week will stay open through Sunday.

There’s a slight chance the D.C.-are will get some rain Saturday night, according to the National Weather Service. Temperatures are expected to hit the upper 90s Saturday and mid 80s Sunday.

Here’s what else you need to know to make the most of your weekend:

  • Adams Morgan’s annual neighborhood festival, Adams Morgan Day, is slated to bring crowds to 18th Street NW for food, music, art and games Sunday.
  • ANC 1B, the neighborhood commission that represents parts of U Street, Shaw, Columbia Heights and LeDroit Park, will hold a community cleanup day at Girard St. Park (15th and Girard St. NW) at 11:00 a.m. Saturday. Organizers will provide tools, water, and free ANC shirts.
  • Another neighborhood cleanup will happen at the 26th Street Park (26th St. NW at the foot of Queen Anne’s Lane NW) in Foggy Bottom Saturday at noon.
  • Pooches can plunge into Francis Pool at 2435 N St. NW Saturday as part of the D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation’s eighth annual Doggie Day Swim, according to the agency. The festivities are scheduled to run from noon to 4 p.m.
  • Stead Park (16th and P streets NW) will have a free concert Saturday at 10:30 a.m.
  • Costumed characters are set to gather at several Dupont Circle bars Saturday during a superhero-themed bar crawl event.

Have a good weekend, everyone!
