COLORADO RIVER EVENTS - OCTOBER ON THE RIVER!!!!
Colorado River events during the month of October are the best! First of all, you get to enjoy the most perfect time for weather at the River.... October is famous for being in the mid to high 80's....little wind....perfect for play!!!! Researching what is available to do (between Laughlin to Parker) , I came across a lot of fun, inexpensive events! Here's what is happening:
LAUGHLIN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
October 11th - 14th
This is a first time event in Laughlin. It begins with the opening night film entitled "Born & Raised" on October 11th. Friday, the 12th, has all day movie screenings ending with a "Cosmic Bowling and Halloween Party". Saturday continues with all day movie screenings and ends with the LIFF Awards Cermony. Sunday again has all day movie screenings.
This is truly an inexpensive weekend of fun! Hotel rooms can be as low as $29/night. An all inclusive VIP Festival Pass (which includes entry access to all LIFF screenings, workshops & social events) is only $99 for regular and $75 for seniors/students! If you just want a pass for all movie screenings, it costs only $50 regular and $45 for seniors and students!
