Big Bear Lake gives folks an opportunity to escape the blistering summer heat and play on the seven-mile long lake, explore the great outdoors, take the scenic sky chair to the top of Snow Summit, play a round of golf, have a home-style barbecue and stroll the Village shops. With clear skies and temperatures in the mid 80’s thrown into the mix, it’s a “no brainer” why people choose Big Bear Lake for their Fourth of July celebration.Big Bear Lake’s pyrotechnics display consistently ranks as one of the top five in California. Big Bear’s Rotary Club, which organizes the annual event, always shoots the highest quality fireworks. They also make sure to a lengthy show of 30 minutes in duration. The show is free and can be viewed from a boat, around the lake and throughout Big Bear Valley.
