2016 Lake Havasu Chemehuevi Indian Days
Back in 1968, then Governor Ronald Reagan declared the fourth Friday of every September to be American Indian Day. This honors the heritage and contributions that Native Americans made over the course of US history. However, the Chemehuevi Tribe celebrates a week early. Thus, this weekend marks the 2016 Lake Havasu Chemehuevi Indian Days.
Beginning on Friday evening, co-ed softball pits everyone against everyone. Games start at 6pm on the Havasu Landing Resort’s Chemehuevi Ballfield. Don’t miss the action.
Saturday promises to be filled with music, activities and more. First, cheer on participants in the Fun Run at 6am. Next, come watch members of the Chemehuevi Tribe parade down Market Street to Day Beach at 9am. Most noteworthy, throughout the day, guests will be entertained by archery demos, swim races and a tug-o-war. Try your hand at horseshoes. Get down and dirty in the sand with some volleyball. Watch talented youngsters perform amazing feats on the stage. You won’t want to miss the cooking contest. Chefs compete for best salsa, fry bread and chili beans. We are all winners there!
First, play ball. Next, embrace the culture of the Chemehuevi Tribe. Finally, enjoy yourself.
