So, we officially entered spring yesterday. For most of the country, that brings a glimmer of hope for warmer weather. Although, they’re expecting even more snow in the northeast today (can you believe it?)! For Lake Havasu residents, sunny skies and 70F temps rule the forecast. To start our Havasu spring events for 2018, how about a little fish and zip to keep you occupied? First up this weekend: the Wild West Bass Tournament Weigh-In. Next weekend? Personal watercraft races with JetJam. Sounds so much more enjoyable than shoveling snow, doesn’t it?

It may be too late to participate in the Wild West Bass Tournament, but you can still be a part of the excitement by watching the best part: the weigh-in. From 3 pm to 5 pm this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, competitors bring in their catch-of-the-day for an official weigh-in and documentation in Lake Havasu State Park. Bring a chair and/or blanket as well as some snacks and water to view in comfort. Watching a weigh-in may sound boring. However, it’s anything but! Spectators have a blast visiting with each other while waiting to see which fish rises to the top of the heap. The grand weigh-in takes place on Sunday afternoon.
