19th Annual Desert Storm Poker Run & Shootout 2017
Lake Havasu, Arizona is the destination for all things fun around the lake, and the 19th Annual Desert Storm Poker Run is one the most popular of these fun events. If you are in the hobby of boating, this poker run is in the top 5 of the best in the Nation! The Shootout is not as it sounds, and maybe not what you would think it would be. The term is actually in relation to performance boats. In addition to the fancy boats, there will be helicopters flying above and round the boats, which is very entertaining to watch. And of course, spectating is completely free.
If you have a very high-class performance boat and would like to show it off, don’t miss out on this event! The Shootout is a two mile course, including 30 classes of boats which will be competing in over 67 total runs. Don’t miss the views of these speeds. Spectating at this event will be a treat.
Parade of Power
This is a boat parade where over 160 participants display their beautiful boats as they parade from Thompson Bay and on through the Bridgewater Channel. As the boats come through the parade, there will be a master of ceremonies announcing the details of the boats for your information! Be sure you have a good view.
