    The weekend before DS is the Lake Havasu Boat show at Windsor State Park. Boats, Vendors, Ski Racing, Car Show and more.

    The Thursday Night Street Party is a must. 4+ blocks of Downtown Lake Havasu are shut down to cars and lined with boats, big $'s everywhere you look. Food, drinks and tons of people make this a real cool party.

    Friday is the Porker Run, get to the channel early to see the parade of boats before the start. Then go down the lake and find a spot to see the boats go by.

    Saturday is the speed runs. Boring IMO.

    The Nautical is DS headquarters, so always something to see there.

    You really dont need a fast boat to enter the poker run

    I like to watch and usually go south to Black Meadows landing
    that where the big boys really open them up

    We are also making it out for our 1st Desert Storm This has been on our "list" for quite some time!!
    Unfortunately it will be without the boat. Couldn't afford that many days off of work to make the tow.

    OK.....one other thing I didn't mention is one of my favorite things to do is the ride from the lake up river to Pirates Cove Resort. This has nothing to do with DS, but if you have not done it, it's a great ride. About 20mi each way the river goes thru Topock Gorge, a wildlife preserve with big rock walls and cool rock formations. Nice beaches to stop at on the way.

    Pirate Cove Resort has a open air bar and restaurant and inside seating too if you prefer, plus a store and gas dock. Big beach to park the boat or grab a slip N/C.

    No inside advice but one hint. Take a little time to go to London Bridge, drop off some one at the dock and have them take pictures of you and your boat with the bridge in the background. Do this early in the week so you don't have tons of other boats to deal with.

    This is a iconic photo op to prove you were there. Have fun.

    BTW, if you do take the ride up river, as you go up the lake to the mouth of the river, stay to the left and look for the channel markers. It can get shallow in spots but the marked channel is always safe to use. Check it out on Google Earth.



    Also this link should work for Pirate Cove. http://piratecoveresort.com/
