Check out 27th Annual The Annual Buses by the Bridge, enjoy more than 600 Volkswagen buses at this year’s Buses by the Bridge.

What started as a split-window campout has turned into a Volkswagen extravaganza with VW buses coming from all over the county to camp out in our Lake Havasu State Park.

This event will showcase VW buses of all makes and models including vintage. Gather the kids on this bright and beautiful Saturday to help burn off some extra energy in the bouncy houses.

For some adult fun, we encourage you to enjoy a scenic hot air balloon ride or participate in the chili cook-off. The finale of this groovy event will be a delicious pancake breakfast on Sunday morning. 

ENTRANCE FEES $5 per person for walk-in spectators (children 17 years old and younger are free), good all weekend as long as you have your wristband on. See the Buses by the Bridge fees for camping rates.
