Since 1996. The Lake Havasu City Festival of Lights really brings out the Christmas spirit -- bring the family for a stroll under the London Bridge along the walkway or take your boat on a night cruise through the Bridgewater Channel as over 500,000 lights set the water aglow. Those who live here year-round know Santa traditionally visits the day after Thanksgiving -- AND, Santa will hang around Lake Havasu to get out of the cold, making regular visits every Friday and Saturday from 6-8pm. So remember to bring your camera to capture the moment and create lasting memories. There's plenty of free parking underneath the London Bridge in the English Village or The London Bridge Resort and Convention Center. Lights go out at 10pm nightly. Event dates and times are subject to change. Please contact event coordinator to verify information.
