Salt River Fields Balloon Spooktacular Takes Flight on Oct. 27 & 28

This Halloween weekend, there’s only one place in the Valley where you can find over 20 glowing hot air balloons and 4,000 pounds of candy: the Balloon Spooktacular. If you’re looking for a safe and family-friendly Halloween event in Scottsdale, you can’t go wrong when you go with the “glow!”

Returning to Salt River Fields for its seventh year, the annual Halloween event offers plenty of activities for all ages to take delight (and fright) in! From trick-or-treating to the free kids’ carnival zone, even the littlest boys and ghouls can get in on the fun. Those brave enough to face ghosts, goblins and other creepy creatures can also take a stroll through the free Haunted Trail.

Of course, we can’t forget the most important part of the event: the hot air balloons! In addition to getting to see the bright and boo-tiful balloons up close, attendees will have the opportunity to go for a tethered balloon ride for a small fee. Room on the balloons is limited, so if you’re interested, be sure to arrive early to secure your spot!

On top of all that fang-tastic fun, there will also be an assortment of food and drink vendors, a Spooktacular marketplace, live music, a costume contest and a fireworks show. More information on the event, including hours, directions and ticket prices, can be found on the Balloon Spookactular’s website.

Happy Halloween!
