Stay Cool with Indoor and Nighttime Events in Phoenix

Average temperature low and high: 82° - 106°
Although June is technically the hottest month in Phoenix, July is still pretty scorching, with temperatures hovering around 106 degrees. But don't sweat it; many events will help keep you cool such as Nighttime Independence Day celebrations and indoor events like the Mad Monster Party, a convention where you can escape the heat and mingle with ghouls and goblins. It's a unique brand of madness, only made possible in the simmering heat of a Phoenix summer.
