October in Lake Havasu City is filled with events this 2011 season. And I have a few events to let you know about starting with the London Bridge Days event. This is one of Lake Havasu City’s biggest events and begins this year on October 15th. London Bridge Days will kick off at 10am with a celebration of the London Bridge’s birthday; it turns 40. There will be over a one mile procession, themed “London Bridge…Spanning 40 Years”. You’ll even get to enjoy colorful parade floats, marching bands, and local emergency services vehicles decorated for the occasion.
The next event is the 34th annual Run to the Sun Car Show. The event will be held October 19th through the 23rd. So, if you one, gather your 1972 and older autos and be a part of the five day celebration of the American automobile or just come and view some of the awesome beauties. There will be a rally that’s organized by Relics & Rods Car Club and will benefit local charities. The event will include the car show, cruise night, a sock hop, Poker Run, swap meet, fashion show, parties, prizes and vendors galore selling auto accessories over the five day period. The host hotel is the Nautical Beachfront Resort.
Along with the local events, there are also many fun activities to enjoy in Lake Havasu such as getting wet and wild off the beaten path on Arizona ATV trails and hiking trails throughout the desert and mountains. You can get a bird’s eye view while soaring above the beautiful landscape in a vintage aircraft or a helicopter. Arizona has over 300 days a year of sunshine to enjoy the most fun things to do.
Lake Havasu wants you to have fun with your family on the sandy beach without the worry of sea creatures and bad currents. You can visit Route 66 and get a glimpse of the 60s, and when the sun gets too hot, you can visit our museums or retreat to the wave pool and waterslide at Lake Havasu’s Aquatic Center.
