Here Come the Buses!

Calling all groovy folks: the 23rd annual Buses By the Bridge is happening this weekend at Windsor Beach.

The annual Bulli meet-up brings Volkswagen Bus culture to the shores of Lake Havasu. The public can explore rows of VW buses; new, old, vintage, and restored.

Even more interesting than the buses themselves is the chance to meet all the unique drivers. Want to meet some drivers from last year’s event? Click Here!
