Memorial Day Weekend at Lake Havasu for People Magazine
20 images Created 19 Mar 2009
Thousands of boaters descend on Lake Havasu, Arizona every Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day to bask in the sun, be seen in their boats and drink, drink and drink more. The "party girls" of Havasu are famous enough to be the most often searched term on my website! But with deaths and injuries a constant presence, a police task force patrols the lake looking for boaters who have had too much to drink. Many are cited, some are arrested and others engage in responsible boating by designating a sober driver. Boating Under the Influence, or BUI, carries the same offense as Driving Under the Influence, yet is far less known.
