The Big Bear Fireworks Spectacular explodes in the sky over Big Bear Lake every July 4th. The fireworks are viewable from nearly everywhere in the Big Bear Lake Valley. Why should you make the trek? This show is consistently rated one of the Top 5 best Independence Day fireworks displays in California.

Also, you can spend the whole day there, starting with the Independence Day Fair on July 3rd and 4th.

Show time typically begins between 8:45 and 9:15pm, runs approximately 30-40 minutes, and is free to spectators. 

Families can watch from any public park  or from a boat on the Lake. Make sure to bring a jacket or blanket because it can get cold. No personal fireworks are allowed.

If you really want to maximize your 4th of July experience, the Above the Boom viewing party features a Sky Chair ride, a live DJ, and panoramic views from Snow Summit.

The Independence Day Fair includes a bounce house, kids activities, arts and crafts booths and live entertainment.
