Halloween Spooktacular Hot Air Balloon Festival
Friday, October 25 and Saturday, October 26, 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. both days
The Halloween Spooktacular Hot Air Balloon Festival is a great place to bring kids for Halloween. With more than 20 hot air balloons on display passing out more than 4,000 pounds of candy to trick-or-treaters, this fabulous celebration also includes live music, food and drink vendors, and a kids’ zone. Try out tethered balloon rides, walk down the haunted trail and watch fireworks with family and friends.
BS West Halloween Show and Block Party
Saturday, October 26, 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.
The BS West Halloween Show and Block Party is a huge outdoor celebration. There are five bars, live performances and a costume contest – and there will be more than 2,500 people there, which makes it one of the largest Halloween parties in Arizona.
Halloween Spook-Track-Ula at McCormick Stillman Railroad Park
Daily from October 25 to October 31
The Halloween Spook-Track-Ula at McCormick Stillman Railroad Park is totally haunted – we think. The whole family-friendly event is perfect for little ones, though, and the whole family can hop on a spooky train ride designed with younger children in mind. On October 25, you can join family and friends for movie night, where they’re showing Hotel Transylvania starting at 6:30 p.m. Trick-or-treat stations will be set up on Halloween night from 4:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., as well.
Nightmare on Princess Drive
November 2 to November 3, 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.
After Halloween’s over, the party doesn’t have to stop. Check out Nightmare on Princess Drive: Area 51 at the Fairmont Scottdale Princess. This 10th-annual event is an alien-themed party that kind-of ties in with Halloween, so we wanted to include it as well.
