No need to wait for July 4th to view the fireworks. The shimmer and sparkle of this winter holiday fireworks show taking place above scenic SARA Park glows brighter than ever this year! A visit to Lake Havasu City during President's Weekend is not complete without experiencing Western Pyrotechnic Association's and Lake Havasu City's remarkable showcase commemorating three amazing anniversary celebrations. New memories with family and friends will be created as the clear desert sky morphs into a spectacular

and more public displays each night. The organizers boast this will be the biggest and best show yet, so don't miss this spectacle that promises to overwhelm thousands of visitors from around the
