Arizona’s Largest Boat Show Set for April 10-12, 2015
The count-down to the 24th Annual Lake Havasu Boat Show, presented by Frontier Communications and Mohave State Bank, has begun. This year, the Lake Havasu Boat Show opens on Friday, April 10 and running through Sunday, April 12 at Lake Havasu State Park, Windsor 4 on London Bridge Road. “Our vendor sign-ups are well ahead of last year and we had a record number of exhibitors in 2014,” said Boat Show organizer Bob Brown. “We’ll definitely fill all available space with at least sixty or more different brands of boats ranging from pontoons and family runabouts to fishing boats, wakeboard/ski boats and the largest selection of performance sportboats west of Miami. If you’re interested in seeing the newest the boating industry has to offer, Lake Havasu Boat Show in April is the place to do it.”
But more exhibitors and new boat models aren’t the only things that Lake Havasu Boat Show attendees have to look forward to on April 10-12. In addition to the return of the always popular Legends by the Lake Car Show sponsored by Prolong and conducted by members of the London Bridge Yacht Club, the boat show also plays host to the 3rd Annual International Chili Society chili cook-off competition sponsored by Havasu Regional Medical Center on Saturday open to all chefs. The chili and salsa contest, with proceeds going to benefit the Lake Havasu High School Athletic Booster Club, has doubled its prize money for 2015, offering over $5,000 in cash to the various winners in each category. More than 40 chili and salsa teams are expected to compete. Best of all, attendees have the opportunity to sample all the recipes by purchasing a $5 tasting kit while at the boat show. .
Then on Sunday, get ready for “Family Fun Day” at the Boat Show. Grade school aged kids wearing their school spirit and/or team/sport shirt to the boat show will be admitted free. “Family Fun Day” will be highlighted by a People’s Choice chili cook-off, a host of carnival games and activities for the entire family, plus tasty fair-food favorites like hot dogs, cotton candy, and kettle corn. All proceeds from “Family Fun Day” go to benefit the Lake Havasu High School Athletic Booster Club.
Brand new this year are two additional special events at the boat show…..an IJSBA Jettribe PWC WaterCross Race featuring over 100 of the fastest personal watercraft racers in the country hitting speeds up to 70 miles an hour around a challenging motocross style race course. Competition begins on Saturday and Sunday at 9am. For those who fancy themselves expert “Cornhole“ players, there will be the inaugural Lake Havasu “Cornhole” Championships at the boat show too with classes for all ages, both singles and doubles/teams.
For the first time at Lake Havasu, several different hovercraft will arrive from around the nation to display. Demonstrations will be performed on and off the lake, Saturday, April 11 also during the Boat Show.
