Xscapers Winter Blast 2

33rd Annual Western Winter Blast Pyrotechnics Show

Western Winter Blast, held each President’s Day Weekend, is the premier pyrotechnics event of the winter. Fireworks manufacturers, show producers, and pyrotechnic hobbyists come to Winter Blast from around the globe for daytime conferences. Then at night, the sky over Lake Havasu City lights up with fireworks shows and demonstrations. Our seven-day Winter Blast Convergence will let you and your fellow Xscapers experience this pyrotechnic extravaganza mixed in with some fun group activities, including live music, group meals and more!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THIS CONVERGENCE

  • The Winter Blast is not an Escapees/ Xscapers event.  This is a 3rd party event that we will attend as a group.
  • Annual Bash attendees will have priority access to tickets.  If there are any remaining tickets they will go on sale on 1/19/2022 at 11:00 am CST
  • This will not be a typical Xscapers convergence.  Club-organized events will be limited, with the majority of events being organized by a 3rd party.

A Note For Dog Owners

Xscapers Winter Blast 7

The organizers of Winter Blast strongly discourage campers from bringing dogs to the event because of the continuous loud noises associated with the nearby fireworks displays. In fact, Dylan’s Dog Park inside SARA Park is named for a dog that dropped dead during the fireworks in a prior year. For this reason, you may wish to skip this event or consider boarding your dog during the Winter Blast Hangout.

If you do choose to bring your dog, the Rodeo Grounds has the following rules:

  • Dogs must never be left unattended.
  • Dogs must always be on a leash when outside your RV.
  • Dogs may not be brought to the grandstands or food court area (but elsewhere on the Rodeo Grounds is OK).
  • No dog waste may be left anywhere other than in a trash receptacle.

The Rodeo Grounds management has advised us that they may ask campers to leave, without a refund, if a barking dog is left unattended in an RV. 

FAQs

There are restrooms and showers onsite.

Sure!  We love kids! Just remember to keep your kids on a leash when they are out side of your RV.  Wait, that’s pets.  Pets on a leash, kids under supervision.

There will be on-site trash dumpsters.  Please break down all trash to make it as small as possible, especially boxes!

There will be no early arrival or late departures for this event.  Please do not plan on arriving any earlier than 3:00 PM on Monday 2/14.  Check-out time is 11:00 AM on Monday 2/21. 

All sites will be 20’x50′.  Only one RV/camping rig per site.  Additional rigs will need to purchase additional tickets. 

Our group will have a designated parking section at this event however, if you would like to park next to someone specific (within the Xscapers group), please arrive at the same time.

There are dump stations and water stations available but please remember to arrive with your black tank empty and your water tank full. Due to the nature of this event, you may not be able to access to the dump station after the event is over, so be prepared to leave the rodeo grounds and dump in a different location.

Cell phone signal is strong for all major carriers.  Speeds can tend to slow down due to tower congestion during large event such as this.  

There will be no coordinated mail delivery for this event. You can use the local post office for general delivery or one of the two Amazon locker hubs located in town.

The main reasons for you to attend a convergence should be to have fun and meet other like-minded RVers.  Networking and making potential business leads is a natural result of being part of an awesome community.  We don’t want the Xscapers community to be bombarded or feel like they are a commodity. If the main reason you are wanting to attend an Xscapers event is to sell something, market to attendees, or simply to generate content we would ask that you contact us directly for corporate sponsorship.

ALL TICKET SALES FOR THIS EVENT ARE FINAL! THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS ISSUED FOR CANCELLATIONS.

If you need to make changes or cancel your registration, please email registration@escapees.com

No problem! Just email convergences@escapees.com with your question, and we’ll do our best to get you an answer.

Is an Xscapers Convergence Right for Me?

Xscapers was formed to bring Escapees RV Club back to its original roots of supporting RVers who are working from the road. At Convergences, you will find a community of active and free-spirited individuals with a passion for travel and adventure.

About 80% of Xscapers have full-time jobs they do remotely or seasonally.  This means we typically don’t hold activities during work hours (with the exception of Annual Bash). Starting later in the day also means later nights. We have found that this can be a factor in deciding what event program people attend.

We try to give the most fun and entertainment value at an affordable price.  One way we do that is by boondocking as much as possible. Our events are also a great way for newbie boondockers to learn from experienced ones. We try to divide our camping areas into those who have solar and those who want to run generators when possible.

Xscapers is an inclusive community, connected through the bond of RVing. This means we welcome people from all walks of life, no matter race, sexual orientation, political/religious views, lifestyle or RV type. Discrimination of any type will not be tolerated.

Registration Includes

  • 7 nights of camping with showers and restrooms on-site
  • Daily Happy Hour

  • The most epic fireworks display in the world

    SMBH (b for blonde) as I see on fb that the tickets were on sale during the Bash. We will be in LHC then anyway. Would we be able to stop in and hang out, knowing we aren’t participating in food or ?
