The excitement is building for this year’s 25th annual Lake Havasu Boat Show, which opens on Friday, April 8 and runs through Sunday, April 10, at Lake Havasu State Park, Windsor 4 on London Bridge Road. While I won’t be attending the event as I have plans back home and will be heading out to the lake that borders California and Arizona a few weeks later for the Desert Storm Poker Run, I will be keeping an eye on the Facebook pages for the show as well as the various companies exhibiting to see what’s going on out there.

If you’re a local, I don’t need to tell you that the show is worth the $5 price of admission for adults, but for those of you debating if it’s worth the drive from Southern California, Phoenix or Las Vegas, the answer is yes. And not just because there is a salsa contest and a chili cook-off that is held in conjunction with the show.
Because, when you look at the list of boat companies exhibiting and the fact that it takes place at the lake, the Lake Havasu Boat Show is a true boat show. Along with dozens of exhibits for accessories, engines, trailers and more, the list of manufacturers and dealers planning to attend is extensive. From Caliber 1, Cobra, Conquest, DCB, Domn8er and Eliminator to Hallett, Howard, Interceptor, Nordic, Shockwave and Ultra, the go-fast hardware on display should rival that of any show in the country not held in Miami.
