If enjoying the fireworks from the lakeshore, know that no charcoal BarBQs will be allowed on the Fourth. Roving patrols by law enforcement will also be reminding revelers that open campfires and personal fireworks are not allowed. Enjoy your Independence Day!

Big Bear Valley, CA — The City of Big Bear Lake and the Rotary Club present the annual Fourth of July fireworks extravaganza over Big Bear Lake–one of the best displays in all of Southern California!  Fireworks launch near the South Shore’s Pine Knot Avenue area, but can be seen from most locations on and near the lake, as well as surrounding San Bernardino National Forest areas. The show is scheduled to begin after 9pm, and revelers will want to tune to KBHR 93.3 FM for music synchronized to the fireworks display. If launching onto Big Bear Lake to view the fireworks from a boat, both public launch ramps on the North Shore will be temporarily closed at 8pm Sunday, and will reopen to vessels at 10:30pm, once the fireworks show is complete. Those going onto the lake are reminded that a Quagga Mussel inspection is required, and yet is offered free of charge from the Big Bear Municipal Water District which operates the two public launch ramps, the Carol Morrison Public Launch Ramp just west of Stanfield Cutoff on the North Shore and the Duane Boyer Public Launch Ramp also on the North Shore and located just west of Fawnskin. Both ramps open daily at 6am. The MWD anticipates busy days on the lake over the holiday weekend but, per General Manager Scott Heule, “If everyone is patient and courteous toward one another, we will all enjoy a safe boating day!”
