PHOENIX– The 10th annual Spooktacular Hot Air Balloon Festival will return to Salt River Fields in Scottsdale this October after a year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  More than 20 balloons from across the country will come together on October 29 and 30 for the Halloween-themed festivities.

Although the balloons will be the main attractions, they could be rivaled by the nightly costume contests, prizes for which include a special trophy, a Roadhouse Cinemas prize pack, a $100 Visa Gift Card and more.

Kids can enjoy over 30 different attractions including slides, inflatable bounce houses and an obstacle course all for free.

Fireworks will commence each night of the festival starting at 9 p.m.

Tickets will run adults $15, kids 3-12 $10 and kids two or under will be free.
