It’s that time of year, folks. The 2012 Lake Havasu Boat Show has arrived! It’s fitting that a city known for its fantastic lake hosts one of the biggest boat shows in the Southwest. We do take our water activities seriously around these parts. That’s why one weekend isn’t enough for a boat show here. Instead, there will be amazing deals, events and fun for everyone from now through Sunday, April 28th.
This weekend (April 21st and 22nd), vendors of more than 40 different brands of boats, pontoons, wakeboards, cruisers, sportboats and personal watercraft will be showcasing the latest and greatest aquatic wonders at Lake Havasu State Park’s Windsor 4 located right next to Hampton Inn on London Bridge Road. Show hours are from 9am to dusk today and 9am to 3pm on Sunday. Qualified buyers will be able to have their own personal boat demo done after 3pm on Sunday or by appointment on Monday, April 23, from 9am to 4pm. All demos will launch from the Windsor Beach Launch Ramp. Admission to the boat show is just $2 for adults and free for kids ages 12 and under. Parking is free.
If you want to see the boats in action, watch one of the races scheduled. Today’s schedule includes Men’s Marathon water ski racing at 12:30pm and Offshore power boat racing at 2:15pm. If you can’t make a race today, though, don’t worry. There will be more racing for the adrenaline junkies scheduled for Sunday, April 22:
- 9am – Mini Marathon water ski racing
- 9;45am – Women’s Marathon water ski racing
- 11am – Men’s Marathon water ski racing
- 12:15pm – Relay water ski racing
- 1:30pm – Main Event: Offshore power boat racing
Food and liquid refreshments will be available on-site, including a beer garden. However, off-site alcoholic beverages are strictly prohibited. While it is fine that you bring your favorite furry friend to the event, they must be on leash. There will be LOTS of people walking about.
