24 Hour Teen Spring Break Event Tonight at Deanwood Recreation Center


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.
