Bunny Balloon Blast to take over Salt River Fields for Easter celebration

Apr 5, 2022, 4:15 AM

PHOENIX — Salt River Fields will soon transform into the place for all ages to celebrate Easter this year, with the inaugural Bunny Balloon Blast taking place on April 15-16.

The whole family is invited to the celebration that runs from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. highlighted by hot air balloon rides, a free kids zone and plenty of candy for everyone.

With plenty of activities for eventgoers, the main attraction may be a visit from the Easter Bunny, who will be available for free pictures inside the festival, according to a press release.

Bunny Balloon Blast will feature over 12 hot air balloons from across the country with each balloon serving as a candy station to keep the sweet treats flowing throughout the night.

Hot air balloon rides will be offered for families to have a bird’s-eye view of the festival and other sights.

The event will also have a handful of furry friends in attendance, with a “Hoppin’ Good Time Petting Zoo,” featuring calves, sheep, lambs, rabbits, chickens and more.

Those at the Bunny Balloon Blast better come prepared with a sweet tooth, with over 4,000 pounds of candy up for grabs at the hot air balloon candy stations.

The kids zone features over 30 games and attractions and there will also be a photo scavenger hunt for the families to participate in.

Tickets to the Bunny Balloon Blast are $15 for adults, $10 for kids ages 3-12 and free for children under two.
