Lake Havasu City will hold its annual free Christmas community dinner on Friday, Dec. 10, at the Aquatic Center. Early bird dining begins at 4 p.m., with doors opening at 3:30, and the second serving is scheduled for 6 p.m., with doors opening at 5:45. Both servings are first-come, first-served, with up to 500 people per seating.

The dinner provides a relaxed atmosphere to share a traditional Christmas feast. Turkeys for the meal are being donated by Shugrue’s Restaurant and prepared by Chef Trevor Best, and WAVE culinary and hospitality students. The meal also includes ham, potatoes and gravy, stuffing, dinner rolls, vegetables, and pie for dessert. Santa will make an appearance at both servings, with toys for children, sponsored by the River Riders Motorcycle Club and distributed by Firefighter Charities. Picture Perfect Photography will be on site to take free portraits for families.

To volunteer for the event, go to and register before Dec. 1. For information, call the Mayor’s Office at 928-453-4152.
