There’s one place to be right now — outside! Make the most of the sun and throw an outdoor birthday party. We found great places to live it up, from the back deck of a play space to a playground with water sprinklers. Click through the slideshow for nine options.

For a Big Splash: Deep River Waterpark

It’ll be easy to blow the candles out at this waterlogged birthday party! Invite your guests to an all-day splash-tastic bash that's fun for kids and adults — especially adults who still think they’re kids. Don’t let the crazy, winding waterslides fool you — there is something for everyone at this all-ages water park, like the Paddles PlayZone that’s designed just for little ones. The 2014 Deluxe birthday party package begins at $285 and includes admission for 10 people and one adult chaperone, a reserved table for the entire day, and a celebratory meal of pizza or hot dogs, drinks and cupcakes. Upgrades are available and additional guests can be added for $28.50 per person in advance or $35.50 upon arrival.
