Each show lasts approximately one hour. Get there early if you want to sit in the bleachers!

 

 

What do you do with your time while you're waiting for the show to start?  Visit vendor row.  Outside food and drinks are prohibited.  However, you can purchase them inside the venue.  There is even a beer garden for the 21+ crowd (must have a valid photo ID).

The organizers of the Lake Havasu Winter Blast ask that you leave pets at home.  Do not set your car alarm when you park.  Otherwise, the percussion blast from the fireworks could set it off.  If you leave the area in your car at any time, you will have to pay for parking again once you come back.  Of course, that is providing that there is a spot for you to park once you do come back.  So, stay put.

Bring your friends and family to SARA Park any night between February 16th and 19th.  Have a blast at the 2017 Lake Havasu Winter Blast.  It's fun for all ages!
