In October 2018, we took a gamble and joined the masses at the Salt River Fields Spooktacular Balloon Festival in Scottadale. The gamble was because we’re not festival lovers (mostly due to crowds). This Spooktacular event was amazing! So unique and fun and yes, there were crowds, but it was managed well and we had a memorable evening.
The highlight of this festival is hot air balloons. There were around 25 giants for visitors to admire, photograph, wander around, and even ride in a tethered balloon (for an extra fee). We also chatted with a few balloon owners and learned some fun facts about how they work. Later in the evening as well, the kids can go trick-or-treating at each balloon.
