Lake Havasu (Summer Series)

Happy Friday Everyone! Since Lake Havasu reaches up to the 125′ in the summer; the events tend to come back in a few months. In the meantime I thought it would be a fun idea to start up a summer series! I will share things like: some great summer recipes, road trip essentials, BBQ Ideas,  Things of that nature. For our 1st series we will start with everyone’s favorite:

POOL PARTY GUIDE! 

Adult Pool Party 

2016-05-29 12.01.52.jpg

Usually, when people throw pool parties, the guest list is full of children who are eager to jump right in and spend an afternoon swimming. But sometimes we just need some time with our adult friends.

 

Skip the formal invites
Create a Facebook event, send a quick Email,  Even a group text message can get the word out. Just be sure to remind guests to bring their swimsuits, which stresses the fact that it’s a pool party.

Go easy on the decorations
Unless you’re throwing a themed party, like a luau, you don’t need to go all-out with your decorations. Instead of decking out everything with streamers and balloons, just make sure that your pool area is clean, neat and set up in a way that caters to the needs of your guests. Instead of a buffet table, sort out tables throughout so everyone isn’t crowded in the same spot.

Provide the essentials
While guests will be responsible for bringing their own pool supplies, it never hurts to have some spare items on hand for those who forget. A basket of extra towels, a few bottles of sunscreen.

Mix up some great cocktails
You don’t need to have a fully stocked bar , Just pick a few select cocktails to feature, like margaritas or sangria, and get enough of the necessary ingredients for everyone to have at least two or three drinks each. For those who aren’t liquor lovers, you might want to set out a cooler full of a few types of popular beer or wine. If you’re not sure what everyone likes, you could always tell guests to bring their own!

Keep the food light
keeping the food light and healthy so your guests don’t feel weighed down while they’re swimming in your pool. Salads, vegetable plates and plenty of fruit should be available, along with lighter proteins like chicken or fish.

Add music
A little music playing in the background will give your party a fun, relaxing ambiance – just make sure it’s not so loud that your guests have trouble hearing each other. Come up with a fun summer playlist before the party, put on a popular radio station or use the Internet to find songs that will appeal to a variety of people.

Lastly: JUST HAVE FUN!


For those who do not have a pool, Lake Havasu has some great spots!

  1. The Aquatic Center
  2. Boat In Beaches
  3. Beaches & Swimming
  4. The Nautical Infinity-Edge Pool
  5. Kokomo Pool

Remember to stay cool, stay hydrated & keep applying that sunscreen. 🙂

Lake Havasu City Weekend Events (PARKER TUBE FLOAT EDITION)

Screenshot 2015-09-30 15.20.43 (2)

It’s here! The 39th Annual Parker Tube Float! All the info you need is right here. Be safe! Load up on lots of water & sunscreen & HAVE FUN!


 

PARKER TUBE FLOAT

39th Annual Parker Tube Float
Date: June 11, 2016
Time: 8:30 AM4:00 PM MST

 

 

SOME TIPS

1. Decide whether you feel like winning or just floating.
The Tube Float used to be much more competitive. Back in the day, it was a race to see who’d get there first. But the people voted with their floats, and the vast majority of people just want to hang out and float for a few hours with 10,000 of their friends. Pro tip: If you really want to get to the finish line quickly, attach a lightweight bucket to a rope under your float and let the current pull you.

2. Get your group together to go. The bigger the better!
You can show up with 2 of your buddies or with 200. It doesn’t matter, but things get crazier and more fun the more people you know. Alternatively, you can always make friends at the Float! Pro tip: Bring ropes to tie your inner tubes together so you don’t spend all day hanging onto each other. ‘C’ clamps are even better for quick release.

3. Get accommodations for the weekend.
Hotel and motel rooms, RV spaces at parks, vacation and rental homes can book out quickly on Tube Float weekend. But There’s always booking a room in a nearby city. Pro tip: Make reservations now for next year!

4. Get there early.
The event officially begins at 8:30am at La Paz County Park on Riverside Drive a few miles north of the town of Parker, AZ. But you’ll want to be there in plenty of time to park, get organized and take advantage of the help at the Float. Organizations are typically present to help provide things like ice and air to blow up your tubes. Pro tip: get there by 7am for the best parking and to beat the crowd.

Tube Float -_8643

5. Bring sunscreen and water.
So here’s the deal: Without sunscreen applied from the beginning of the day, you will be exposed to dangerous levels of sun and you’ll burn like a crisp. We’ve seen this happen to some people every single year, and all of a sudden what you thought was going to be the perfect, sexy tan turns out horribly, blisteringly bad. So don’t be that person! Enjoy the event and wear sunscreen  Similarly, you’ll need to stay hydrated. Remember, if you’re going to drink alcohol too, that will have the opposite effect and actually help de-hydrate you. Use the 1-1 Rule (1 beer, 1 water bottle) So, bring alcohol if you want (no glass!), but bring lots of water too. Pro tip: Dedicate one inner tube to carrying your stuff, including a cooler.

6. Some other things to consider bringing with you:
Water guns. Beach balls. Frisbees. Extra bottled water. Nerf torpedos. Water mats. Waterproof phone cases. Cheap sunglasses. Music. Snacks. Hats. Pasties. Extra sunscreen. GoPros. Drones. Trash bags.

Tube Float -_8702

7. Have a plan for how to get back afterwards.
The Float begins at La Paz County Park and ends at BlueWater Resort & Casino. While no official transportation back to the Park is provided by the event organizers, there are shuttle buses operating from the Casino for a small fee. Pro tip: If you’d like to avoid waiting for a long time to get back, have some of your group leave their cars at BlueWater’s north parking lot.

8. Prepare to party afterwards.
The event finishes with a party at BlueWater Beach. There’ll be music, prizes, food and lots of people in a good mood. Then, at night, area bars up and down the river will be extending the party as long as you can stay awake. Please take your trash with you!

Tube Float -_9113

9. Post your crazy photos and video footage.
Use the hashtag #parkertubefloat to post your favorite Tube Float moments on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and elsewhere. Don’t forget about Facebook LIVE & Periscope LIVE !!

You can pre-register at our office from 8 am – 5 pm Thursday and Friday or at River Rags, Spanky’s RV & Marine or The Bar. On-Site registration available at La Paz County Park June 11, 2016 from 7 am. Air compressors on site to blow up your floats.

Remember happy floaters, this isn’t a “boat float”.  We do allow (1) vessel to float with your float group, but not just to have boats float with out floaters attached.  Everyone one on the boat must be registered.  It is an event zone from La Paz County Park to BlueWater Resort & Casino.  Event zone means there is a marine event in progress, no wake zone is strictly enforced.  Floaters will always have the right away.  Safety is very important to us and we want it to be important to you.  Please pack your trash in and pack it out.  We will have trash bags available.  Please don’t trash the river.  

Please contact our office at (928) 669-2174 or email us at info@parkeraz.org if you have more questions.
We will have wristbands for sale at other locations as soon as we know.
Please visit our sponsors!
Sorry no refunds!

In Honor Of Memorial Day

We want to take a moment to remember those who have died serving in the armed forces.  Today is a day that has been made for the ones who left home, but did not return. We gather in order to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for us, and to pay them homage. Freedom isn’t free. Pictures speak 1,000 words, these photos put into perspective what this day is really about.

 

“Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices” – President Harry Struman

Wear it Colorado

Date(s):  May 21, 2016 @ 10am-12pm (or until vests are gone)
Venue: London Bridge Beach Park Stage
Admission: Free
Website: www.lhcaz.gov

Contact: Tom Gray  –  grayt@lhcaz.gov

Description: Boating officials from three states are teaming up to promote boating safety awareness and life jacket exchange at London Bridge Beach Park. All boaters are urged to stop over.Arizona Game & Fish, with the help of the Lake Havasu City Police Department, are promoting boating safety awareness and a life jacket exchange program. Bring your unsafe, torn-up, or outgrown life jackets and get a new life jacket (while supplies last) and courtesy vessel safety checks are free to the public. Boaters who frequent Lake Havasu are all urged to stop over.

PLEASE! One jacket exchange per person at a time but people may get back in line if they have more than one jacket to exchange. The traditional “orange life jackets” will NOT be exchanged (unfortunately, last year’s event brought folks exchanging brand new $5 traditional orange jackets for a better quality, more expensive jacket; the AZGFD does not consider this a fair exchange).

Please contact Arizona Game & Fish if you have questions. Event dates, times and/or details are subject to change. Please contact event coordinator to verify information.
