Times Spent Outdoors: Priceless!

Lake Havasu Boat Show Primed To Deliver More Than Ever Before

Arizona's largest boat show is set for April 10-12.

The count-down to the 24th Annual Lake Havasu Boat Show, presented by the Lake Havasu Marine Association, has begun. This year, the Lake Havasu Boat Show opens on Friday, April 10 and runs through Sunday, April 12 at Lake Havasu State Park, Windsor 4 on London Bridge Road.

The Newest From Boating Industry

"Our vendor sign-ups are running 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."

Cars And Chili Too

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," 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 on Saturday; it's 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. Best of all, attendees have the opportunity to sample all the recipes by purchasing a $5 tasting kit while at the boat show."

Entry forms for the chili and salsa competition are available online at the boat show website, http://www.lakehavasuboatshow.com.

Really Fast PWC Racing

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 9 a.m. 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.

Miss Geico Will Be There

For fans of offshore power boat racing, don't miss the special appearance of Miss Geico, the reigning 2013-2014 SBI offshore world champion. This will be the only opportunity in 2015 to see this remarkable 150+ mph race boat in person in the Southwest before it begins defense of its world title for the coming season in Key West, Fla.
