It is so busy here in Quartzsite right now that it seems like time is just flying by with all the fun things to do.
There is music everywhere all day long. You can go down to the Main Street Traders and listen to musicians play most of the day or stop at any of the many jams going on at the RV parks. If you want to go to dinner and a show we have two special events this week.
It is hard to keep up with everything going on here but I will give it a try. All the shows are going on full blast so make sure not to miss any of them see my page on swap meets for more information. If you don’t want to drive or walk to all of them you take the shuttle.
I wrote about the La Paz County Search & Rescue Benefit last week at the QIA that is on Tuesday January 14th. I hope you got your tickets for the dinner and show already as I hear they have been going fast.
January 17 Friday Spaghetti Dinner at the Queen of Peace Catholic Church. Held from 4-6 pre-sale tickets $5 or $6 at the door. Spaghetti served with meat sauce, salad, garlic bread, drink and desert.
January 17 Tyson Wells officially opens their Sell-A-Rama with so many vendors selling all kinds of items you won’t know where to start. Put on your walking shoes and don’t miss all the great items from rocks to socks.
Saturday the crafters are out again at the Senior Center for their Craft Fair. I don’t know how they keep up making so many great hand made items for sale.
The Quartzsite Metal Detectors Club has their 3rd Saturday of the month Hunt in the Park. New members can sign up at the park. You don’t have to be a member to do the hunt or just want to come by learn more about the metal detecting club and their gold claims. There will also be information about the up coming Quartzsite Gold, Treasure and Craft Show in February. See their website for more information of costs and prizes at Quartzsite Metal Detectors Club.
The GRAND Gathering is having a Fundraiser Saturday with a Prime Rib dinner and The Howard, Sandy & Friends Variety Show! Advance tickets are highly recommended so as not to miss it and can be bought at the QIA for $12.
The big RV show starts up on the 18th called The Big Tent Sports, Vacation & RV Show. This can take you all day to see everything and learn about all the new items out there.
Now if you have not completely worn your self out on Saturday it is always fun to go to the Shell Station in the evening and see the old cars that come in for the Cruis’en. Not only is this free but there are hot dogs and ice cream for only 50 cents.
The Dump Station Revue will be at Quail Run RV Park to keep you in stitches laughing at their Dump Station Revue at 7pm https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dump-Station-Revue-Comedy-Show/136108726508073
