Many snowbirding ATV enthusiasts find Quartzsite an attractive locus. Plenty of trails. Warm winter days. Now the ATV set has even more to look forward to: Come mid-February of this upcoming season they can participate in the Desert Bloom Off Road Rally.
Promoted as "one of the premier off road rallies in the country," the event will anchor at Tyson Wells Showground from February 14 through the 17th. All ATVers, Jeepers, motorcyclists and others sharing the common bond of getting off the pavement will find guided rides, drive-in motion picture showings, raffles, a poker run, lots of chow, and of course, RV hookups for landing on at the end of the day.
In addition to off-road activity, back at Tyson Wells a number of vendors will show off their off-road specific wares.
With the choice of a mid-February rally date, show organizers Five2Productions may have picked a winner. The huge wave of crowds that impacts Quartzsite in January will have ebbed off, yet plenty of "other" vendors should still be in town. If your an ATVer with saddle sores, a walking trip among the vendor tents may come as a welcome relief, and as they say, "If you can't find it anywhere else, you can always find at in Quartzsite."
