Big Bear, Ca, August 15, 2011 -
August has so far been an outstanding month for events in the Big Bear Valley with thousands of people attending signature events such as the Big Bear Air Fair, and the Big Bear Lake Antique Car Club Fun Run. This past weekend the fun run attracted more than 5,000 people to the Village of Big Bear Lake to see nearly 500 antique cars from roadsters, hot rods, classics and antiques, line the streets of the village, and make their way around the lake. Over 2,000 people ventured over to the Renaissance Faire in Fawnskin for Elizabethan era entertainment. If you missed the Renaissance Faire last weekend, you are in luck as it will continue this weekend in Fawnskin, with a special sword fighting demonstration added to the list of entertianment for Sunday. Over at the Big Bear City Airport 79 kids participated in the Young Eagles program, and all children were taken on plane rides in small 2 and 4 seater planes. For the active crowd over 40 people participated in the Butler Peak hike, part of the Seven Summits hike series. The August fun will continue this weekend with the Cowboy Gathering at the Performing Arts Center, and Art on the Lake at the Marina Resort.
