Waters Light Up at Lake Havasu

Imagine a boat parade, baseball tournament and an English village decorated with lights all at one time.  That is just part of what goes on in Lake Havasu.

Jackie Leatherman, director of event marketing for the Lake Havasu City Convention Center and Visitors Bureau since 2016, supports an estimated 400 events held every year in Lake Havasu City. Leatherman says, “The London Bridge Yacht Club has been organizing the Christmas Boat Parade of Lights for 35 years.”

According to Leatherman, there was an estimated 52 boats in the Boat Parade of Lights. Lights were reflected off the water. Visitors walked along the Bridgewater Channel from the London Bridge to Rotary Park where there is playground equipment and the largest sports park in Arizona for BMX, scooters and skateboards.  

Leatherman says people can also decorate and enter a paddleboard, kayak or boat into the Parade of Lights. Leatherman says the Resort also hosted outdoor ice skating, boat rides and rides in the desert that are fun for the whole family. Fun also includes an arcade, an indoor aquatic center, bike rentals, a cool rock shop and a ton of hiking trails.
