WPA 34th Annual “Desert Pyro Party” Western Winter Blast Pyrotechnics Show
Why should you have to wait until July 4th to enjoy fireworks? Or spend an astronomical amount of money to visit Disneyland or Disney World for a huge pyrotechnical aerial display? Fortunately, you don't have to do either one of these things. Why? Because the Western Winter Blast Pyrotechnics Show comes to Lake Havasu City every February. And believe me when I say that this is one event you definitely don't want to miss!

For more than 30 years, professional pyrotechnicians (yes, that's what they are called) test their latest creations at the Western Winter Blast Pyrotechnics Show. With so much desert land surrounding it and our warmer winter weather, Lake Havasu City makes the perfect location to showcase new firework displays.
This event lasts for four nights. Thursday typically starts off on the light side. But Saturday tends to be the biggest display. In turn, it's also the busiest. Even so, any day is a good day to see the night skies illuminated by colorful lights exploding in the air.
Once inside SARA Park, feel free to watch from your vehicle. However, you may still want to bring a blanket and/or lawn chairs for your comfort and to guarantee you a place to sit. Or head over to the Pyro in the Park area. For every show but Thursday, organizers set up some seating at Pyro in the Park. Pyro in the Park includes music, food, and alcoholic beverages (for the 21+ age set). Grandstand seating is also available if you would prefer. The speedway also provides a great place for viewing. Alcohol will only be available for sale there on Thursday night. No outside food or alcohol will be permitted on-site during the entire event.
I know you love your furry friends. We all do. But loud noises, big crowds, and flashes of bright lights scare even the tamest of animals. For their comfort and the safety of those around you, please leave them at home.
The Western Winter Blast Pyrotechnics Show is always a huge crowd-pleaser. Thousands of people come to see it each year. Be prepared to wait in a long line on Highway 95 when waiting to enter. Parking is on a first-come/first-served basis. It fills up at least an hour before the show starts. Once that happens, the entrance to SARA Park closes to vehicles. So, plan on coming early or wear your comfy shoes and be ready to hike for a little bit to get to the viewing areas. Don't worry, though. It's well worth hoofing it if you have to.
