Spooktacular Balloon Festival

Don't miss the dozens of glowing hot air balloon rides, nightly firework shows, live music and more at the 9th annual Spooktacular Balloon Festival. Kids of all ages love this spectacularly spooky festival featuring a pumpkin patch and a free KidsZone.

Stroll the Spook Trail, a fan favorite, and watch the more than 20 majestic hot air balloons illuminating the sky. For kids and families looking to "soar" into the night's sky, there will be tethered balloon rides for the whole family. 

The Spooktacular offers a safe and memorable trick-or-treat experience for everyone, including nightly Costume Contests for kids, adults and groups. Shop the Spooktacular Marketplace for arts, crafts and merchandise from local shops, and enjoy beverages and foods from dozens of on-site vendors.
