Lake Havasu Boat Show

For the 33rd year the Lake Havasu Marine Association presents the 2024 Lake Havasu Boat Show at Lake Havasu State Park - Windsor #4  in the Arizona State Park, April 19th-21st. The event is sponsored by Anderson Powersports, the premier dealers of PWCs, UTVs and all sorts of fun things in the tristate area. It has become the largest outdoor boat show in the Western United States and features the very top names in boats with many of them manufactured right here, in Lake Havasu City.  


All in all you will enjoy over 150 exhibits displaying over $50 million worth of boats and supplies and UTVs and PWCs and Rvs and more! Add to that, the food and beverages (including the adult type!), live entertainment on the Radio Central stage, competition in the Lake Havasu Cornhole Championships (see home page to register) and we have the recipe for a fun weekend with the family.

DSM Events announces new structure for the new year!

The largest event production firm in Lake Havasu City, Arizona announced that Steve Ticknor, Havasu Realtor and entrepreneur, has joined with Jim Russell, DSM founder in a new partnership to expand and enhance the work of DSM . This move has roots in their successful ownership of the “Anderson Powersports Desert Storm presented by Kicker” event, the biggest performance boat event in the western US.

DSM Events is the largest, oldest producer of events in the tristate area of Arizona, Nevada and California. They have specialized in motorsports related functions beginning with the Lake Havasu City “Cherokee Fly-In” in 1988. During the next 35 years DSM has produced over 150 events of their own in three states and two countries. In addition, they contract to events of others for various equipment and services now numbering in excess of 500. One such event was DSM’s contractual relationship with the “Havasu Balloon Festival” a few years ago, where Ticknor and Russell first worked together. Ticknor’s extensive experience with non profit organizations along with his stewardship of the Balloon Festival (another of the largest events in Lake Havasu City) brings a new dimension to the list of DSM‘s events. The list includes the “IJSBA World Finals” (the largest PWC event in the world), the “Anderson Powersports LHMA Boat Show” and “Fireworks Havasu” for spectator experiences of the “WPA Winterblast”.

Desert Storm joins the Marines! The Marine Corps League that is....

Anderson Powersports Desert Storm presented by KICKER has chosen the Marine Corps League to become their charity beneficiary for 2024.


Steve Ticknor, president of Desert Storm and DSM Events, announced today that the Lake Havasu City Detachment #757 of the Marine Corps League will be the charity beneficiary of the 2024 Desert Storm Event, the largest Performance Boating function in the western US.

Ticknor, bringing his extensive experience in the community service of our area selected the Marine Corps League to be the recipient of the generous donation this flagship event generates for charity. DSM Events wants to see that money used locally, and the Marine Corps League is not only local, their community service is exemplary with a long list of projects such as Toys for Tots and Meals on Wheels. DSM, Desert Storm and our staff are honored to give a little back via this worthy organization, and to help them with their fine work.

“Norm Carrick is the Commandant (on the left in picture) , and Capt. Richie Sloma (on the right) is Vice Commandant of the Lake Havasu Detachment of the Marine Corps League. I’m proud to say that Capt. Sloma has long served in an active executive position with DSM Events. We are thrilled to support these veterans who continue to serve so unselfishly” Ticknor said.
