Lake Havasu Festival of Lights 2023From dusk until 10 pm every night between now and January 7th, over half a million lights bring a sparkle to the London Bridge Resort, the English Village, and the London Bridge itself. Park for free at the resort, the convention center, or the English Village. Then take a stroll lakeside to see the twinkling lights up close. While there, grab a bite to eat and knock off a few items on your Christmas list by perusing through the shops.
For a different perspective, take your boat out on the lake after dark. Cruise through Bridgewater Channel and under the London Bridge. The resort's lights seem even brighter from the water.
Havasu Holiday Boat Parade of LightsWant to enjoy the lights in an extra special way? Come watch the Holiday Boat Parade on Saturday, December 9th. From 6 pm to 9 pm, Dozens of boat owners decorate their boats in a variety of ways and parade them through Bridgewater Channel. If you want to participate in the parade, too, you can. All you need to do is register by December 8th and pay the $100 entry fee. Organizers welcome individuals, families, businesses, and non-profit organizations to join in on the fun.
Where are the best places to watch? Rotary Park, the London Bridge, London Bridge Beach, Lake Havasu State Park, and, of course, the lake itself. Just stay clear of the parade's path. Wherever you choose to watch from, make plans to show up early. They fill up quickly.
