Welcome to Lake Havasu Paddlefest 2013 in Lake Havasu City, Arizona! This exciting recreational event is organized by Southwest Kayaks, Lake Havasu City's official Hobie Kayak dealer. This event, however, is not limited just to Hobie owners – it is intended to be all-encompassing, attracting all ages, skill levels and categories of paddling fans. Everyone is invited to visit the official website and register now for the annual Paddlefest taking place each November.
During daylight hours there is a kayak fishing
tournament scheduled Saturday morning followed by races,
games and product demos until early afternoon. The day ends with a ‘poker run’ that will take paddlers through the London
Bridge channel over to the Nautical Beachfront Resort, then to Rotary
Beach and back to base camp. The best hand wins a grand prize of a new Hobie Kayak.
Sunday will be another fun day with more product demos and a mid-morning
parade of paddlers to the London Bridge for a group photo.
There’s a nominal $35.00 registration fee for paddlers to take part
in all of the planned activities. Registration also includes a fishing
tournament, free dry tent and motorhome camping at base camp plus an
assortment of goodies including an official event T-shirt. Spectators
