Two decades ago, a group of friends decided to take their vintage split-window VW Buses to the Lake Havasu shoreline for a weekend campout. Now, 22 years later, we have Lake Havasu Buses by the Bridge. Bus owners from literally every corner of the country come to Lake Havasu for three days of family-friendly fun and adventure.

Guests enjoy a lantern workshop, chili cook-off, live concert, and lantern walk on Friday, the 12th. There's a coloring contest and kids raffle on Saturday as well as a trip to the bike park and cornhole tournament. Things wind down with a pancake breakfast and awards on Sunday. It is also a great place to look for hard to find VW parts for your project! For a full schedule of events, please visit the Buses by the Bridge website
