Lake Havasu Christmas Events 2023
Sledding with Santa
We have it on good authority that Santa plans on stopping by Lake Havasu this weekend for a very special event. This Friday, December 15th, he'll be at Tinnel Memorial Park from 5 pm to 8 pm. And he plans on bringing some snow with him directly from the North Pole. Load up on free cocoa and cookies. Then, grab a sled and zoom down the snow-covered hills with the jolliest of elves, Santa Claus.
