Mayor Muriel Bowser’s administration and the DC Department of Parks and Recreation are hosting their second installment of Late Night Hype 2.0, tonight, Thursday, April 14, at 7:00 p.m., ending early Friday morning. The party is held at the Deanwood Recreation Center at 1350 49th Street NE.

Late Night Hype 2.0 builds on a series of outdoor carnival-style events that took place last summer and will return weekly this year when school is on summer vacation.

“The first Late Night Hype 2.0 event last month was a resounding success with 700 teenagers and not a single incident,” said DPR Director Delano Hunter. “We look forward to continuing to provide a safe and fun environment where kids can be kids.”

This is the second in a series of three, with the previous event at the Turkey Thicket Recreation Center in March and the next taking place a month from now at the Barry Farm Recreation Center on Friday May 20.

The event, geared towards children ages 13 and up, will include:

  • Performance by DC’s CCB (Critical Condition Band)
  • Karaoke
  • Complete recording studio
  • Late night pool party with DJ and water sports/games
  • Pizza and grills
  • henna tattoo artist
  • Haircuts, braiding and nail technician on site
  • 360 degree photo booth
  • Xbox and PlayStation video games

Performances/demonstrations of music and art will take place between 7:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. After 11:00 p.m., the leisure center will remain open all night, including the swimming pool, open gymnasium and video games.
