Lake Havasu Balloon Festival

I would appreciate any thoughts on this festival. Planning to attend and dry camp at the Marina. Any thoughts and/or suggestions from previous attendees would be appreciated. Also, what kind of tickets did you buy?

Currently sitting 27 miles south of LHC, I have not seen the, Winter Activities/Events, publication for the area yet, and can't find last years for the Balloon Festival contact info and dates. I'll track your post, and post any info I can round up.
In the 6 years I've been in the area, there have been issues with high winds on the event days, JMHO, I wouldn't be shelling out in advance for any tickets.

I don't know what Marina you are referring to that would allow dry camping but there are many dry camping opportunities in the area.

See Havasu Balloon Festival and Fair | Lake Havasu City, AZ - Havasa Balloon Festival for information.

It is true that Havasu get's some wind but that's normal (hey it's the desert). Usually get a day or two of good enough weather for the balloons to launch during the event.
