There are two things that really bring out the "little kid" in me, and that is Christmas lights and Fireworks! I never get tired of seeing either one of them (just ask my family!) So, when I read a flyer that Lake Havasu was having their annual "Winter Blast Pyro Party" I knew I had to go! We belong to our resort's RV Club and they like to put rallies together for interesting places and things, so I thought I would give it a try and sign up to be a "Wagon Master" and see who all would be interested in joining me for a few days. The Winter Blast was for a whole week, but I had commitments so could only go for 4 days. I thought maybe I would get 5 or 6 rigs interested...it turned out I'm not the only one who loves fireworks! 15 other couples do too! Actually, we would even have had more, but quite a few said their dogs didn't...so, had to pass it up.
What fun we all had! We lucked out with great weather (clear, and in the mid 70's) with beautiful sun rises and sun sets every day. We started out with a welcome pot luck and of course had a ton of wonderful food, and a nice wood fire to sit and chat around before we wandered off to see the fireworks.
During the daytime many enjoyed going into town to see the London Bridge and or hike the various area. We, along with others checked out the local History Museum. It was fun seeing how Lake Havasu got it's start. Quite a marketing plan...flying people in from snow-filled states in the middle of winter to show them "sunny & warm" Arizona!
Each night we were treated to a different live band, then followed by hours of fun-filled fireworks. You could see them from anywhere, but the best seats were in the bleachers (we camped at the rodeo grounds).
Our final night dwindled down to half the group as many had to leave early due to various commitments, but that didn't stop the rest of us from enjoying one last dinner together and a nice campfire that we all decided to stay around and watch the last fireworks from there...all comfy together.
A simple rally, only 3 hours away, but packed with loads of fun and friendship! What a BLAST!
