Have you ever seen those dreamy photos of hot air balloons filling the sky? We have and we're here to tell you that a plane ticket to Cappadocia is unnecessary. This new hot air balloon festival is one of many things to do in Scottsdale. Plus, it will make you feel like you're in Turkey. You'll have to see it for yourself.

Rainbow Ryders recently announced that they're bringing a Skyfest and Balloon Glow to the Valley that'll fulfill all of your adventuring needs. 

This vibrant soiree is set to take place this fall from November 27 through November 29 at Westworld of Scottsdale. 

Narcity has confirmed that you and your friends can snag a ticket for $20 per person closer to the festival's date. 

Instead of celebrating Black Friday in a crowded store, you and your crew can enjoy a day filled with live music, tethered rides, balloon glows in the evening, and a beer garden for your boozy Thanksgiving weekend needs.

Grab your camera and prepare to take tons of pictures. 

Dozens of balloons will fill the air making for the perfect backdrop to any photo. 

On top of being able to see the world below from the sky, there will be holiday-themed activities and the option to shop for some vintage, one-of-a-kind items. 

Who knows? You might leave with a super unique souvenir.

Yummy eats and treats will also be available for purchase from M Culinary and other vendors. More details will be released closer to the event. 

Scottsdale is such a beautiful city and if you attend this event, you'll be able to see it from a whole new height! As they say, "Carpe diem."
