Style days in a calendar DayRender event that are retrieved from a query

Hi Guys
Using C#  I have a dataset populated with the data retrieved by the below query:

string selectStatement = "SELECT SELECT * FROM Events WHERE eventDate >= GETDATE()
";
SqlCommand selectCommand = new SqlCommand(selectStatement, con);


DataSet ds = new DataSet();
da.SelectCommand = selectCommand;
da.Fill(ds);

The above code works fine, what I am trying to do is in the calendar1_DayRender event, style each date in calendar1 that is equal to the dates retrieved by my query, the below code is a bit of a mess, please help.


protected void Calendar1_DayRender(object sender, DayRenderEventArgs e)

DataTable dt = ds.Tables[0];

        foreach (DataRow dr in dt.Rows)
           
         for (int i = 0; i < dt.Rows.Count; i++)
            eventDate = DateTime.Parse(dr["eventDate"].ToString());
        DateTime myAppointment = e.Day.Date;
       
       
             if (eventDate == myAppointment);
        {
            e.Cell.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Red;
        }

In the line:

DateTime eventDate = DateTime(dr["eventDate"]);

I am getting an error:

System.DateTime is a type but used like a variable.
