4th of July in Lake Havasu City 2021

 

4th of July Festivities in Lake Havasu for 2021

4th of July Lake Havasu 2021

In less than two weeks, we celebrate our nation's 245th birthday. Per usual, we expect to see thousands of people descending upon Lake Havasu City to celebrate. Grab the sunscreen and your loved ones. This July 4th weekend is going to be tons of fun in the sun at Lake Havasu.

 

4th Annual Rockin' the Docks Summer Concert

Littletown Band Lake Havasu

 

Rockin' the Docks is back in full effect with the Littletown Band performing their brand of country music over the water. Havasu Landing Resort sets up a special stage on their dock specifically for this talented bunch of musicians. They play from 6 pm to 10 pm on Saturday, July 3rd. Havasu Landing hosts this summer concert for free to the public. Watch by land at the resort. Just make sure you bring blankets and/or lawn chairs so you can enjoy yourself in comfort. The resort sells beer (for the adults) and water (for everyone) on-site. But you may bring snacks and non-alcoholic beverages with you.

 

But if you are anything like me and my family, you will probably be spending the day out on the lake. So, if you do not wish to bring your boat in early, pull up near the dock and drop anchor before the 6 pm start time. Make sure you watch out for the designated swim areas. Floats and inflatable tubes are also welcome. Plus, immersing yourself in the water may be one of the best ways to stay cool in the triple-digit temperatures while listening to the concert.

 

July 4th Fireworks Over the Lake

4th of July Fireworks Lake Havasu 2021

 

The day after Rockin' the Docks is July 4th. That means fireworks over the lake! After the sun sets, settle in for a treat for the eyes over Lake Havasu. The best vantage points for watching the fireworks show are from Rotary Park, Nautical Beachfront Resort, London Bridge Beach, and Thompson Bay. In fact, many people enjoy watching the fireworks spark overhead while onboard their boats. But beware that the lake gets crowded this time of year. So, make sure you allow plenty of time to pull your boat off the lake at the boat ramps. And be courteous to others while doing so.

Happy Birthday, America!

Parker Tube Float 2021

 

The 43rd Annual Parker Tube Float is Back for 2021

Parker Tube Float 2021

Looks like we really are starting to see a return to normality in the Lake Havasu area. After a postponement and then a cancellation of last year's event, the Parker Tube Float comes back full force this June! That's right. The biggest event to take place on the Parker Strip is back!

 

  • What: 2021 Parker Tube Float
  • Start: La Paz County Park (7350 Riverside Dr) - Maps & Directions
  • When: Saturday, June 12th, 2021
  • Launch: 8 am to 12 pm

Time to get your float on, ladies and gentleman! Yes, Lake Havasu offers endless hours of fun on the water. But they are not the only place to cool off and have a good time. Located just a 45 minute to the south of Havasu, the City of Parker can easily fit into your weekend plans. And those plans need to include the 2021 Parker Tube Float!

Parker tube float 2021

Participants meet up at the La Paz County Park to register. From there, you hop aboard a bus that takes you to the drop-in spot on the Colorado River. Bring your own float to inflate when you get there. Or save yourself and your party time by renting a Fluzzle tube. The company inflates these interlocking tubes for you and picks them up when you are done floating. No muss. No fuss.

Tube Float Parker AZ

Register for the float by June 6th to receive the discounted rate of $25 per person. If you wait until after June 6th, the cost rises to $40 per person. If you decide to bring your own boat or personal watercraft to keep track of your large group, it costs just $25 per vessel. For the true procrastinator, on-site registration will be available at the La Paz County Park on the 12th.

After the Parker Tube Float ends, everyone is invited to join the after-party at the Pirate's Den. They have lots of fun activities planned for everyone.

Pirates Den Parker AZ

Make sure you wear your hat and sunscreen. Water shoes work better than flip-flops, which tend to fall off while you float. If you want to stay connected with other floaters in your party, make sure you bring some C-clamps with you. None will be provided at the event. While not required, paddles and oars help you navigate through the river a bit easier.

Have fun!

Isn't it funny how a song can instantly take you back to a specific time in your life? Rockabilly dates back to the '50s. Its blend of country music with rock 'n roll and hint of bluegrass tossed in makes it Americana in its truest sense. Then, throw in the classic pin-up looks of Betty Grable and Marilyn Monroe but with tattoos and Converse shoes. Now, you have the Rockabilly lifestyle down to a "T". Come celebrate this marvelous mash-up at the Lake Havasu Rockabilly Reunion 2021.

Lake Havasu Boat Show 2021

 

The 30th Annual Lake Havasu Boat Show Returns for 2021 to a New Venue

lake havasu boat show 2021

Lake Havasu City is not called "the oasis in the desert" for nothing. Our namesake provides endless hours of entertainment. If you live here, you either need to own a watercraft or know somebody who owns one. (Trust me. It is much better to have your own.) If you are in the market for a boat or PWC, you are in luck. This weekend, the Lake Havasu Marine Association hosts its annual Lake Havasu Boat Show at SARA Park. And this is one show you are not going to want to miss!

 

  • What: 2021 Lake Havasu Boat Show
  • Where: Sara Park, Havasu 95 Speedway (7260 Dub Campbell Pkwy - Maps & Directions)
  • When: 12 pm to 6 pm on Friday, April 9th, 9 am to 6 pm on Saturday, April 10th, 9 am to 3 pm on Sunday, April 11th
  • Admission: $8.00 per adult, kids 6 & under are free, parking is also free (cash only at the gate)

 

With over 150 exhibitors showcasing their finest goods, the 2021 Lake Havasu Boat Show is the largest show of its kind in the entire Southwest. You will find all of the best vendors at the show. Everybody from Avalon to Yamaha wants to show you the latest and greatest in pontoons, party barges, custom power boats, wakeboards, fishing boats, and more. Many vendors even let you take them out for a test drive on the lake before you make a decision.

It is also a great time to update your safety equipment. Last year's life jackets might not fit this year's bodies. And Lake Havasu law requires that you include an appropriately-sized life jacket for each person onboard your vessel. Plus, you want to make sure your watercraft is outfitted with all the latest in safety equipment to ensure your loved ones are protected while enjoying a day of water-filled fun.
