Though it never quite reaches a state of being autumnal in Phoenix, there’s no reason not to celebrate the spookiest time of the year: Halloween. If you love decorating your home with skeletons, ghosts, bats, and jack-o-lanterns, then you’ll want to make time to get out to these Halloween-flavored events and happenings.
One of the most unique seasonal celebrations in the country is the Salt River Fields Spooktacular, which sees more than 20 hot air balloons out on display and passing out candy to the kiddies. In addition to live music and plenty to eat and drink, there will be fireworks, tethered balloon rides, and a haunted trail.
Speaking of haunted attractions, they don’t get much cooler than 13th Floor Haunted House, the premier haunt in all of Phoenix. This year’s event consists of two unique attractions: “The Possession,” which follows the thread of the blockbuster film by putting you face-to-face with a terrifying nun, and “In the Shadows,” where you will visit the aftermath of the PL4-GU3 virus and come into contact with those infected by it. If you have a young one, you may want to leave them at home — children under the age of 12 are not advised to attend.
These are just a couple of examples of the fun goings-on to experience in Phoenix this Halloween. For a reliable ride to get you to it all, stop into Sanderson Ford.
