Set up begins for Havasupalooza

Workers fence off Rotary Park’s southern shoreline on Thursday as they prepare for this weekend’s Havasupalooza event. The festival will begin Saturday at 11:30 a.m., with a floating stage, four live bands, concessions and space for boaters and pedestrians alike. The gates open at 9 a.m., with tickets available at the Nautical Beachfront Resort and at the event Saturday morning.

“It’s our end-of-summer event,” said organizer Mark Kirkland, of the Havasu River Rats organization. “We plan on making this a staple event year after year.”
