Scottsdale seems to be the trial run location for all cool and amazing new things to do in Arizona, and this year is no disappointment. From November 27 – 29, 2020, keep your eyes up and watch as the hundreds of colorful hot air balloons take to the skies at this new Scottsdale festival.
The Scottsdale Sky Fest & Balloon Glow heads to Westworld of Scottsdale for morning and evening sessions this fall, where the festival opens at the ungodly hour of 5:30 am. Opening Ceremony starts at 6:30 am on Saturday and Lift-off is at 7 am when the hot air balloons will rise in Scottsdale and dot the Arizona horizon. If you’re more of a night owl, don’t worry, the Balloon Glow tethered rides from 5 – 7 pm will be more than worth the wait.
The festival grounds include a kids zone to keep your little ones happy, a curated shopping experience to help you find exactly what you’re in the mood for, and a beer garden, which opens at 6:45 am for all those who live by the motto, “it’s always 5-o’clock somewhere.”
