Event: Spooktacular Balloon Festival

Celebrate Halloween early with the 9th Annual Spooktacular Balloon Festival at Salt River Fields on Friday and Saturday, October 25-26, 2019 from 5-9:30 pm. Don't miss the dozens of glowing hot air balloon rides, nightly firework shows, live music and more. Kids of all ages will love this spectacularly spooky festival featuring a pumpkin patch and a free KidsZone presented by Power Crunch. Guests can also stroll the Spook Trail if they dare, a fan favorite manned by local high school students and featuring surprises around every corner. On top of that, more than 20 majestic hot air balloons will illuminate the sky as they participate in the world's longest continuous glow at over 3 hours. For kids and families looking to "soar" into the night's sky, there will be tethered balloon rides for the whole family.

The 9th annual Spooktacular offers a safe and memorable trick-or-treat experience where there is family fun for everyone, including nightly Costume Contests for kids, adults and groups. Shop the Spooktacular Marketplace for arts, crafts and merchandise from local shops; enjoy beverages and foods from dozens of on-site vendors.
