You may have noticed that our waters have seen a lot more traffic over the last few days. That’s because the Lake Havasu Desert Storm Poker Run has come to town! One stop and you’ll instantly see why this has been named the “Top Poker Run in the Nation” by the prestigious Performance Boats Magazine.
The 15th Annual Lake Havasu Desert Storm Poker Run and Shootout officially starts today and will continue on through Saturday with tons of activities for boat lovers of all ages. To start the festivities, the very first “Krusin’ for Kids” charity rides are available today (Wednesday) for special needs kids and adults here in Lake Havasu City. Tonight, silent and live auctions will be held at the Oregon Custom Marine open house. On Thursday, the party takes to the streets of Havasu, with a Desert Storm Street Party on Main Street beginning at 12pm.
Friday is when the official Poker Run starts, with participants parading through the Channel before heading off. Of course, the evening ends in a party as well at the Nautical Resort. Finally, the Desert Storm Shootout takes place on Saturday. The best place to watch boaters race each other is at the Site Six Launch Ramp, where all the racing begins. Awards will be handed out at a ceremony Saturday evening. Festivities include live music and dinner in the Lake Havasu Poker Run Village.

The lake and streets of Lake Havasu City will be alive with music, laughter and the sounds of power boats for the next several days. Get on out there and enjoy the sights and sounds for yourself!
