Lake Havasu City, AZ: Come to the 35th Annual Boat Parade of Lights.

Come and enjoy an evening of entertainment during the the 35th Annual Boat Parade of Lights being held on Friday, December 1st, 2017 and Saturday, December 2nd, 2017 along the Bridgewater Channel, near the London Bridge, in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.

The boat parade will start at approximately 6:30pm MST on both Friday and Saturday.

This year’s theme for the boat parade is, “Light the Way”.

Watch as boats brightly decorated in their holiday best will delight children and adults alike.

Watch the boats cruise through the Bridgewater Channel beginning in Thompson Bay and continuing under the London Bridge to the north end of the Channel, with a turnaround at Windsor Beach and back.

Bundle up and take a stroll through the Channel – the only time you’ll see the Channel packed full of boats and boaters in winter gear at night.

Come cozy up with family and friends and create treasured memories of a favorite holiday tradition!

Boat parade participants and sponsors invite you to visit the docks in front of the London Bridge Resort where parade floats will be lit up nightly beginning at dusk.

Bonfires will be permitted throughout the Channel on the island side beach areas but must be contained in a portable, self-contained fire pit. All ashes must be removed entirely and the area left clean.

Absolutely no digging of fire pits in the sand and no dumping of ashes in the water. The area will be patrolled throughout the evening.

Bonfires are not permitted on the new white sand beaches at the north end of channel.

There will be great viewing at the Nautical Beachfront Resort where the Parade of Lights starts, Rotary Beach, throughout the Channel on both sides between Rotary Beach and Windsor Beach, the English Village, across the London Bridge, and at any of the restaurants along the Channel (Early reservations are recommended).

There is no charge to view the 35th Annual Boat Parade of Lights.

Plenty of free parking is available at the English Village and in the parking areas on the island near the Channel.

Plan to get there early as traffic around the London Bridge can become congested.

Event dates, times and/or details are subject to change.

People wanting to participate in the boat parade can enter their boat for a chance to win prizes for Grand Marshal’s Award, Commodore’s Award, Best Family/Individual Award, Best Corporate Entry Award, Best First-time Entry Award, Best Service Club/organization Award, Judge’s Choice Award, and Best Sparkle Award.
