For 6 - 7 months of the year, Phoenix weather is wonderful to enjoy. The even climate makes it a perfect venue to host all types of festivals almost year round. Hot air balloons are a popular attraction in Phoenix and every year University of Phoenix Stadium hosts the Out West Balloon Festival. Balloons in the night sky are certainly the perfect Instagram moment to display on your feed.
