Folks, this is THE see and be seen event in the boating industry! Named "One of the Top Five Poker Runs in the Nation" by Performance Boats Magazine, Desert Storm 2014 is guaranteed to be a world-class collection of the most prestigious performance boats from across the nation! Racing from the heart of Lake Havasu (starting at Site Six off of the island) to Spectator Point, top speeds upwards of 160+ MPH are not uncommon here. The air will be buzzing with the racers' helicopter teams flying above the boats right above the water.
To kick off the event, the Desert Storm Street Party, located on Lake Havasu's Main Street, is ELECTRIC. Many of the boats racing will be on display up and down the boulevard and will take your breath away with their massiveness. Whether
you enjoy viewing extreme sport boats or just want to speculate on who
will win this year, you do not want to miss out on the excitement of the
Thursday night Desert Storm Street Party.
